    Check out Ehren Kruger's films, most of them are horror/mystery films.

    1998 Killers in the House

    1999 Arlington Road, New World Disorder

    2000 Scream 3, Reindeer Games

    2002 Impostor, The Ring

    2005 Rings, The Ring Two, The Skeleton Key, The Brothers Grimm

    2007, Blood and Chocolate, Torso

    2008 The Talisman

    2009 Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen

    2011 Transformers: The Dark of the Moon


    Any one who did "The Ring" has to be a very talented horror writer. So do you think Bay hired him for this reason?

    But wasn't "The Ring" a remake anyway?

    On MSN.com the ring was voted one of the top ten scariest movie of all time

    It's a Bay film so probably not very dark. He loves him some strong lights, even Armageddon had a pretty darn illuminated space cave.

    It could be pretty dark hence the writer's specialty in horror and thriller films, but Bay won't let it get too dark.

    Wasn't it a "reimaging" of the Japanese Ringu?

    Dunno. And some of those other films sound neat, too.

    ... a secret wish of mine: It should end black. Decepticons have won, Autobots are death and the humans are cursed. That would be some creepy stuff to watch.

    But the truth will be:

    Lol I would rather not. I mean not Ironhide. He knows how to flippy trick over innocent humans on the ground (hence the whole slow mo flippy trick in TF1.)

    Considering that there was a rumor floating around that
    robots would be murdering humans
    , coupled with the full-on invasion shown in the SuperBowl commercial, I think it's a pretty safe bet this is going to be darker than the first two.

    It's tough to say.

    Ehren Kruger has a lot horror film writing under his belt which could bring some interesting things to the film. The problem is that writers are almost at the bottom of the movie making totem pole. Far too many people that can squish even the best ideas a writer can dream up.

    Plus you have the wee problem of even if he did write something nice and dark they are just going to go with some sort of happy good guy ending because Hollywood don't think people who go to the movies over the summer can handle any other ending. Look at how a film like Hancock started off with some pretty cool ideas only to become a mess of a family comedy for that happy ending.

    I think it'll be darker than TF1 and ROTF, but I doubt it'll be too dark.

    It would be pretty awesome if Dark of the Moon was really dark/serious. But I sorta doubt it. This is Bay we're talking about, not Christopher Nolan.

    i still hope that DOTM ends with all the transformers dead, a win for the autobots, but they all die.
