When Related But Incompatible Genres Clash

From Within made a small splash at Tribeca ten years ago and is mostly known as a footnote in the history of The Secret Circle as it features Thomas Dekker and Britt Robertson in a small town magic fantasy story.

But it’s a pretty interesting setup, with a girl falling for a brooding mysterious outsider a year before Twilight came out in cinemas, and a silent metamorphic killer hopping from victim to victim a few years before It Follows. So that’s a teen paranormal romance colliding with a teen horror...

And as a result this is what happens when you cross The Silver Kiss Of The Magical Twilight Of The Full Moon with Dread - a teen paranormal romance with no happy ending. I can see why it didn’t do well, which is a shame really.
