Yes yes yes... there have been a plethora of alien movies invading the big (and small) screen over recent years. And many have been downright dreadful. Poor scripts, predictable plots and amateurish acting, direction and production.
However, this is most certainly not one of those.
The plot is solid. The shifts in time line well considered and engaging. The acting suspenseful and the aliens... hmmmmmm? OK the aliens (as usual) play a very low key role and are mostly shadowy off camera characters. But then hey, they're aliens. So what do you expect? Lol
All-in-all an enjoyable movie if you're ready to engage a little by stepping into the actual plot and give it some space to affect you. I know that most movie watchers expect to be bedazzled and thrown into a mindless haze of visual spectacle but that doesn't mean that there's no space for more introspective 'alien' movies such as this one.
So switch off the lights, make a hot chocolate and enjoy this horror-sci-drama for what it is.
