Horror. Stylized caper. Period piece. Sad bastard introspective. Genre weirdness. Roll it!
Tidy little creature feature. Good cast. It had some great VFX shots and scope. They did a great job of keeping it moving. Though the emotional weight was left very light for me.
A couple of important moments were not thought through enough. They failed to convey information. We were left wondering what information was being conveyed in the shot and were often just left unsure about the point.
Overall I would have liked a little more character story. We sped past a lot of details and the pace didn’t leave room to sit with them at all.
YES! I screamed involuntary. Love it when that happens. They did a great job at cutting this together and folding in some VFX work without it losing its digital vibe.
When it strayed a couple of times into found footage “showing” the other participants what was happening in that person’s house it either soared or sunk for me. Overall though, the moments when it felt contrived paled in comparison to how it successfully built tension and paid the fuck off!!…
