One of the better movies sci-fi/horror films to come out in years. Highly enjoyable.
I've just re-watched after a year. So, still not grown on me; not the best abduction film out there, but it has its moments. I wouldn't say it's a solid plot, but it works and strangely does draw you in at times. The main problem for me is the constant need to change my volume from 20 to 40; it literally goes from whispering to overly-loud violin jump scare music in a nano-second (which I dispise so much I have to make an effort to watch films with it in). I was a little disappointed with the ending; it says 'sequal' and this just isn't worth that effort. Still a four (just) and worth a watch.
It’s fine. But the twist isn’t the surprise they want it to be.
I really liked this film. I wouldn’t really classify it as a horror though more sci-fi for me. But if abduction were real I feel like this would be believably the scenario. So that kinda unsettled me.
Lots of people seem to like it, but I just found the main characters dull and unsympathetic.
