“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds."

The Absence of Light (2006)
How bad is it? It sat on a shelf for years before release. It's awful.
Should you see it? No.
When you look at the credits of this film, you see Michael Berryman, Tony Todd, Caroline Munro and Tom Savini, so you expect there's going to be something worth seeing in the film. There isn't. Two mysterious organizations battle to control a scientific discovery that holds the meaning of life. There's too much convoluted plot and talking and the film relies on the worst CGI this side of The Amazing Bulk. The film is cheap and amateurish to the extreme, which is forgivable, but it's also very dull.
