Darlin’ (2019) (Blu-ray Review)
Directed By: Pollyanna McIntosh
Starring: Pollyanna McIntosh, Lauryn Canny, Cooper Andrews
Rated: UR/Region A/2:35/1080p/Number of Discs 1

Found at a Catholic hospital filthy and ferocious, feral teenager Darlin’ is whisked off to a care home run by The Bishop and his obedient nuns, where she’s to be rehabilitated into a “good girl” as an example of the miraculous work of the church. But Darlin’ holds a secret darker than the “sins” she is threatened with, and she is not traveling alone. The Woman who raised her, equally fierce and feral, is ever present in the shadows of Darlin’s psyche and is determined to come for her no matter who tries to get in her way.

Darlin is the third movie in the “woman” series and follows Luck McGee’s The Woman. He produces this one but Pollyanna McIntosh who was “The Woman” writes and directs this one! Basically we have a younger girl from the same group that the infamous woman was from and at the start of the movie she’s dropped off at the E.R. all wild as ever and we are off and running. As you’d expect from a girl who looks wild and tries to bite folks, she’s rushed off to a religious school and tried to make a bit obedient, but as you can probably assume the church has some other motives. While I do think some of the movie doesn’t work very well at times, I do like this movie. I think the story is solid and our leading young lady played by Lauryn Canny is great in the role. But the movie does do some awkward things from time to time.

I can see where lovers of The Woman might find where this one doesn’t add up to that level. But at the same time I have to admit this was a movie that really pulled me into the story, had a few twists and turns along the way, and gave us a good start that runs to a finish. There’s some blood, there’s some questionable stuff here and there, but I find this one as solid as it could be. Now if only we can forget about the awful song that closes the movie because it seems to be way out of place. Darlin is better than expected for me and might just be better than you expect as well, just as long as you don’t hold it to the previous films too much. We have some very likable characters and some very hateful ones, but I think in the end everything comes out being satisfying enough. I’d suggest everyone give it a watch.
