The darker it gets the more you see
The story follows Jamie, a troubled young man with a birthmark on his face, which has left him feeling isolated and fearful, hiding from the world outside. He lives in the East End of London, an area notorious for its violent hooded gangs. According to news reports, the gangs are now wearing demon masks. But, one night, Jamie discovers the terrifying truth.

If this movie hadn't failed to make me care even remotely about the character(s) then it probably wouldn't have failed to mess with (at least) my head, either. But it did. The story was boring, and although not everything was as predictable as I had expected, the MC's personality and behaviour, in combination with his superficial and annoying everything, made it too easy to not care about anything even though it was just as easy to see something was wrong.

Or, maybe that was just me.
