It's now one of my Top 5 scary movies
It's not perfect, and there's a few things I would have done differently, but it's definitely one of the best horror movies I have ever seen, and I have seen a lot. It is now also one of my top 5 scariest movies! The others four are Dead Silence, Darkness Falls, One Missed Call, and the Unborn; and this film fits in well with that category. It is creepy/jump-scene scary as opposed to blood and violence. As for story line, some may disagree with me and say this film has no "story" but I think it does. True, some details are vague, but I believe deliberately so. Also, some parts were explained very subtly if you pay attention. I think it stands out against some similar movies due to the character development plus the unique main plot. There's always gonna be haters of every movie, but if you like the movies I listed above and can accept it as an imperfect but still REALLY scary and overall well-done film, then see it!
Finally, a female character with some sense!
This movie is a little cliché and probably won't go down in movie history, but it's pretty good for a sci-fi thriller. The main thing I liked was that the main female character was not stupid and incapable, nor was she scantily clad and obnoxiously "feisty." I am female, and I hate most female characters in this sort of movie. Also, Guy Pierce's character was pretty funny and smug, and even though I sometimes hate that, it seemed to work in this case. He was so smart-pants I couldn't help but love him. I really liked the chemistry between the two main characters; they really played off each other well and "made" the movie for me. This is more of a character-driven sci-fi without gallons of special FX, so be warned if that's what you are wanting. It's not a perfect movie, but it stands out from some of the cookie-cutter science fiction that's out there.
