Trivia

It was a particularly cold day when it came time to film the carnival scene and was physically exhausting for the actors. Even though it was filmed in the south near Birmingham, Alabama, it was freezing. It was shot through the night into the next morning. Temperature was 32 degrees with 10 mph wind gusts. See more »

Goofs

When the 2 survivors check out the radio equipment in the police station, the word receiver is misspelled on the equipment-it shows the misspelling "reciever" . See more »

Quotes

[from the trailer]
Ana: [looking worriedly through the car's windshield] What is that?
Freddy: The darkness. In three days, everything will be gone.

Effortless, Supernatural Fairytale
28 June 2014 | by moorehart1See all my reviews

I feel like the ratings are giving this movie a bit of a beating, and unfairly so.

I appreciate that this is not a mind-blowing blockbuster, but - taken in context - it is just a beautiful dark-tale. Someone previously mentioned 'pace' issues, but I didn't actually find it a fault.

The two leads are strong and believable, even facing such a fantastical race to find a reason for what is happening. I think it is cleverly wrote to piece together the mystery.

A few other reviews have mentioned 'Silent Hill', but if you are anything like me and a big wimp when it comes to horror... please don't be put off as although a bit nail-biting at times, it is far from 'Horror'.

If you don't go in expecting it to change your life, then I would seriously recommend this film.
