A man in a remote locale is driven insane my personal demons, delves into strange artistry, and turns on his family. Oh, and he needs to keep an eye on a potentially explosive boiler too. No, it's not Stephen King's The Shining, though Brian James Freeman has a character-driven, flashback-obsessed style similar to King’s. But The Painted Darkness is a more personal tale about child abuse and tragic events buried deep in the soil of the subconscious. Freeman may lose some points for originality, but he gains them back with his crafted style and deft execution.
