Not a monster movie

The official trailer on YouTube makes this look like a monster movie. But if you're looking for a monster movie, this isn't it. There is a creature, a really cool looking scary one, but it's not on screen much and doesn't have much to do with the story. Before you spend time and money on this movie, just know what you're not getting.

What is this movie about? Hard to say. The story revolves around Ethan, who discovers the creature but is otherwise a very dull person who does nothing, sleeps during the day, and avoids most people. The only person Ethan likes is his younger brother, Shane. They still live in the rural town they grew up in and seem stuck there.

And now people in this small town start disappearing and turning up dead, their torn up bodies found scattered around town. And only Ethan knows why.

This movie - Not a monster movie! - is painfully slow, taking gobs of time for very little to happen as it simmers and creates atmosphere. There's very little action. Much of the storytelling occurs through dialogue, especially long voicemail messages. Pay attention to these long verbalizations, they're practically narration and the audience's best hope to interpret what's going on or decipher the characters' motivations. There are some chilling bits of scenes, particularly a single line right at the halfway point of the movie, that indicate something very spooky is going on, but good luck figuring out what that is. I have some theories, but those would be spoilers. (See Denis Villeneuve's underrated Enemy (2013). I suspect it inspired the writers of this movie!)

To enjoy this movie requires A LOT of patience. Be prepared.

Felt like this was a complete waste of my time

Saw this film on the program of the Nashville Film Festival. Based on the initial few votes (rating this highly) and as a huge SciFi fan, I went in with hopeful expectations. Oh goodness what a terrible let down - a SLOW, dreary, boring, pointless movie.

I sincerely don't relish being critical of *any* artistic project, and realize this took a lot of people many hundreds of hours of time effort to make. Everyone has a different perspective and some people (goodness knows who) might enjoy this. If you are into SLOW moody atmospheric movies screen it for yourself and see. But by the end of the movie I was honestly just praying for it to be over. It just didn't work for me at all.

In the event this gets some straight to video or streaming distribution, someone really needs to get busy in the editing room. Perhaps if the movie had been SIGNIFICANTLY trimmed, and had only had a run time of 60 to 80 minutes, it wouldn't have came across as bad. But honestly there wasn't enough story here to even make a tight 30 minute episode of the Twilight Zone, much less a 2 hour feature film. I guess on a technical level these guys have been to film school and it looks great, with interesting lighting and camera work at times. The creature in the film (a cross between a spider and the Alien) was a let down, and didn't scare or excite me in the least. IMHO this is anything but a modern horror SciFi classic.

Honestly didn't enjoy this one at all, and felt like this film was a complete waste of my time. Rarely take time to enter a review, but came here to save you the same fate. A friend who watched it with me felt even more negatively, so it wasn't just me. Given the limited number of days and large number of choices at the film festival, sure wish we'd have spent these 2 hours elsewhere!
