A Really Thoughtful Horror Movie
26 August 2014 | by (utah) – See all my reviews

OK, there are some flaws with this movie and they almost overwhelm the plot line. Yet by the end, this sci fi/horror movie has a solid punch by the end even though its not to most people's liking. Though if one reflects on horror movies, their twists don't always conform to the popular American storyline.

The strong points in this movie sort of reminds me of the atmospheric mood of Alien (1979), the plot and character development of Splice (2010) or the horror movie 1408 (2007) including their endings. To this movie's strongest credit, the foundational sci fi concept at its core is developed in a way that takes it concept further than many or most of the sci fi/horror movie of its kind, advancing the premise to a new level which most movies never obtain.

Of coarse the flaws in this movie almost become detracting, such as the incongruity of the purported monster until one factors in the mind twisting element like that found in the fascinating sci fi/horror thriller Galaxy of Terror (1981). The most upsetting element of this movie is the tortured character manipulation of one of the scientists, the sidekick, to some extent even the protagonist and his relationship to his wife's purported character some of which seem more designed to conform to a plot outline that didn't necessarily have to flow in the fashion it did as Aliens (1986) or even espionage thriller The Numbers Station (2013) or horror flick The Cell (2000) did so well. Nevertheless, the outcome has some merit, albeit in its own twisted way sort of like THX-1138 (1971) but perhaps in reverse or Brazil (1985).

So with all its flaws, this movie moves the quality of storytelling up a bar, something so hard to do these days. Unfortunately, by the same token, they also prevent this movie from becoming a classic like Solaris (1972) or even its remake of 2002.
