Beyond, 3 November 2010
Author: kosmasp

This is a very well crafted little movie. It does offer quite a few clichés and might let itself down a bit after a very strong beginning, but I still feel like this deserves to be seen. Of course you could argue that the current rating suggests otherwise (the movie having only managed to get a bit more than half of what I gave it). But then again, shouldn't you judge for yourself?

Especially if you do have a thing for small little horror movies, with a neat idea, that do have a well crafted (filmed) product to show to you. The acting is nice and even if you do not like where it is heading, I do hope you like the movie as it is. I know I did (but then again I do have a thing for independent, well crafted horror movies)!
