One of the best horror movies of 2010?
I saw this movie with very low expectations since the reviews and ratings on IMDb where so low. However, this is arguably one of the best horror movies I saw coming out of recent British horror cinema. The acting was good and the characters convincing, as was the cinematography. I'm usually very disappointed by many horror movie creatures. However, this movie stands out as having particularly original and gruesome creatures. As a Lovecraft fan, I felt that the movie had very appealing lovecraftian elements, especially the diary which might have been a bit much. This, along with the uninspiring title, might be my two main reproaches to the movie. Contrary to what another reviewer commented, the obscurity surrounding the creatures' motivations, the reasons for their appearance or their very existence, makes the movie even better; they don't ruin it by providing a stupid explanation as in other movies. We are left in the same uncertainty as the characters. It managed to make me doubt if I wanted to turn off the lights.
I preferred this movie to Insidious and to Paranormal Activity. It clearly does not deserve such a low rating. It's simple and efficient story far surpasses the recent crap people sometimes call horror.
