Trivia

The name of the town in which Ana and Freddy grew up is Pearl. Wild-cultured pearls are best known from being discovered in oysters and other mollusks, but the allegorical use here is that it is a precious center of a town that is apparently going to be destroyed by the Black Fog (which has, of course, another meaning, not to be spoiled here). Just as a pearl is surrounded by the mollusk that produced it, and just as the mollusk is surrounded by the sea, the town of Pearl is surrounded by what appears, at first, to be a home-like quality, which is soon surrounded by a greater darkness.

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.
