quieter and more arty than I expected, but it's also a great film.
I was genuinely surprised! The pacing of the movie is handled really well to develop and intriguing mystery. Excellent camerawork as well.
It was a cool concept but it was so SLOW. Alien looked cool for the few seconds we see it. The movie didnt really fit for shudder.
Though polarizing for a lot of viewers, this film conjures up pure sensual and sexual themes that resonate with most people. Creature effects were amazing--even though I would have like to had seen more of the creature "in action" but the characters and the performances were fantastic as well. The film abruptly ends with either the option for a sequel or the option to make minds wander in frustration. It is totally worth the watch. 3.5 Skulls...great, but not epic. You may need to only watch it once - even if you are someone who enjoyed the film from start to finish.
Pretty good. More creepy than terrifying. Has a Euro arthouse vibe that won’t be for everyone.
