Confusing yet Suspenseful
27 April 2002 | by (California) – See all my reviews

Overall, the movie was good. There wasn't much originality but a really big plus was given because there wasn't much violence. Don't get me wrong: I don't hate horror/mystery movies with gore, but it is a very refreshing change when a movie comes out with little or no violence. Yes, the end of the movie was open-ended but that was intended to leave the viewer's imagination run wild. For those of you who hate making sense of the ending and don't want to think up what happened...I came up with one. So, if you haven't seen this movie yet, please don't read the rest unless you want the ending to be spoiled for you. I've decided that the boy, Matt, who took pictures of everything became that black-bird...because, remember, at the very end we see the desert in the bird's point-of-view and then it takes a snapshot of it's view, like Matt would have. I'm thinking that the old man in the begining at the restuarant took the body of the little girl since at the very end she sees a motorcycle and says "Nice bike" as the old man looked at the family's car in the begining and says "Nice car." There's lots of symbolism in this. I'd also like to say that I think that there wasn't just one "creature." It was probably a cross between a bird and human. How else would things like that be able to walk and fly?

Good movie. Good ending.
