Lessons of Darkness
A blundering New Orleans-set thriller under the spell of archaic stereotypes about Southern Bayou blacks.

Blame screenwriter Ehren Kruger (Arlington Road). I can't tell if this hit-and-miss scribe is a remarkably talented guy who's unfortunately had a few misfires or if his few good scripts were just the result of a large amount of blind luck.

This is a moody, creepy thriller with some genuinely scary moments and a couple of twists that took me completely by surprise.
