What was advertised: in a blended homage to the thing and the shining, a group of scientists in the Canadian mountains discover an ancient tomb that may hold an ancient lovecraftian threat (with native mythological attributes) to the world in a way too familiar to a real threat to the planet. What came in the package: a bunch of b grade actors arguing with each other and occasionally dying while a furry recites pretentious poetry. Two points for the beautiful landscape band wasted concept...
If you enjoyed this, I would also recommend The Thing and a podcast called The White Bunker. Though this movie doesn't have as clear of a monster as those titles. I'm withholding a skull because as a Canadian, 2 things bothered me. 1) They kept saying miles instead of kilometres, and being Canadian I don't actually have a grasp on how far a mile is. 2) You've got a limited power source preventing you from freezing to death. CLOSE. THE FUCKING. DOORS! Even before shit started actually going down, every door I saw in this movie was open. If it really is -50, you wouldn't be able to stand near an open door.
Maybe Shudder should just give us The Thing
Thats one of the best movies Ive seen in years. Perfect for fans of the lovecraft genre.
not bad until the BS ending
