Uniquely Powerful and Original Existential Horror Film
Uncompromisingly horrific, unflinchingly realistic, and unrelentingly intense, this is one of the finest films of utter terror to have been produced in quite some time. Director John Culager has created a cinematic experience that relies upon an intelligent script, haunting imagery, and themes of family devotion to grip the audience like a vice. It is that caring and love that truly distinguishes this motion picture from the average horror film and gives it so much heart. These are people we care about and they are played superbly by a superior cast. Anthony Michael Hall is extraordinary as a father fighting to save his family as he struggles to retain his humanity. Alan Ruck and Daryl Hannah are also superb and their presence brings a great deal of gravitas to the film. Shirley Jones is stunningly effective in a moving role she gives incredible depth. This is indeed a difficult movie to watch at times for one can not feel themselves asking the most important question presented in this film,"What would I do?" Truly powerful cinema that uses the horror genre only as a pretense to broach existential and moral issues that Hollywood too often ignores. The difficult choices made in the name of survival are vital ones and they are explored as only director John Culager has the courage to do.
