The director said that editing the film was a big challenge. It was a long, complex process because of the story's dual structure. See more »

The shadow monster woke up. It saw the boy in the pot and said:
[making his voice gruff]
"Mmmm. I'm starving. I'm going to eat you up."
So the monster opened his mouth wide and swallowed the little tailor whole. The boy fell and fell into a dark cave filed with slime...
Is that it?
That's all I could come up with.

I'm not normally a fan of scary movies but the inclusion of Clive Owen convinced me to give this film a look and I wasn't disappointed. It's cleverly constructed & wastes no time setting up the creepy atmosphere which lasts throughout. To some extent the storyline was predictable however the interesting ending left me more than satisfied. Here's hoping they never make a sequel as it's perfect as a one off experience.
Try not to watch the trailer or read anything more than a brief summary and make your way to the cinema as soon as this one comes out as it's worthy of a cinema experience!
