Out of Darkness review – immersive stone age horror | Horror films

What are our most primal fears? And how do they relate to real-world threats? These are intriguing questions for the horror genre, so it’s surprising that the stone age has more often been a setting for comedy (Year One, The Flintstones) or fantasy adventure (One Million Years BC).
