"The whole cast performed brilliantly, relying on only a handful of props and some fanciful stage lighting to guide us through a range of emotions. We laughed, we cried (really!), we pondered, we shivered with chills down our spines."

"In this third year of production for the Halloween season, Force of Nature Productions has proven that they don't fear pushing the boundaries of content and creativity in order to offer a chilling theater experience. While this year's performance touches on themes that are not comfortable for some, there are breaks which offer a respite through comic relief. Fallen Saints: Dark is an experience which makes evident the collaborative relationship between the writers and performers, who together present a very personal experience which hopefully helps the audience to feel less alone with the traumas they may have experienced."

"I loved this play!! The cast is fantastic, and really makes you feel like your part of the show! The subject matter gives you plenty to think about. The writing and direction were fantastic! This one is definitely a must see!!"

"Fallen Saints: Darkness does not strive to maintain that level of shuddery horror, opting instead for a creepy sort of revulsion in the face of human malice. Ultimately, the play is less scary than depressing - you're more likely to shed a tear than emit a scream."

"If you haven't seen Falling Saints dark!! You need to!! It was one of he most intense and mesmerizing stories I have ever seen!! It make you think about what you have endured throughout your life and what others are going through!! The beginning is so unexpected and makes your senses rise to attention! As you walk through to your seats you are introduced to a room filled with dark things and you go into the theater where you are seated!! The really neat part is that you are a part of the stage!! Once those lights go out your heart starts to flutter because you have no idea what is next!! As this happens throughout the whole show!! The cast are just amazing and they put every bit of themselves into their characters! They are what make it so mesmerizing!!! The cast and crew have put everything into this show and you will see what I mean when you go and see it for yourself!! Get out there and see it before it's gone!!!"

"Love being scared but hate how it's become impossible for anyone to actually scare you? SEE THIS SHOW. Its psychologically elements will scathe you; its blood will entertain you; and its story with full-circle ending will make you sinisterly smile. Phenomenal acting with a smart and different premise, "Fallen Saints" is the show to see and Forces of Nature Productions the theater company to watch!"

"This show is bad ass!! It's just the ticket to get you primed for the spook season. I might have hid behind my wife at some point. Might have. But she is a badass too so don't judge me."

"Halloween season is starting early this year with Fallen Saints. Tho you may think you are in for a traditional spooky time, as the show progress you find yourself in a more real horror story. One you can easily identify with. Nicely performed in an intimate black box, Force of Nature keeps pushing themselves to deliver quality shows and leave a mark in the audience."

"The set is plain, it is a simple black box theater, but the sound design more than makes up the difference. The world feels full thanks to simple things like a baby's cry being enmeshed with some truly creepy music or audio editing. These cues really brought home the unsettling feeling they were striving for and made a lasting impression long after the final scene... All in all, this was a gut-wrenching exploration of fears that is sure to hit a nerve for many audience members.  The use of sound and the excellent cast are so seamless that it really gives a lot of weight to the heavy ideas being explored.  Fans of theater or those who are interested in a show that explores modern day fears should definitely give this a look."

"...the ensemble works to put the audience in the appropriate mindset. With the lights off, you can hear the performers creeping and crawling about, using hisses and snarls to create a mood-setting, nightmarish soundscape. Melissa Muñoz's makeup design is stunning. She turns each actor into a gloriously made-up, though slightly twisted, china-doll-like figure. The result is a collection of beautiful yet grotesque-in-appearance actors who easily shift in and out of their roles to play a wide range of characters."
