Good in its genre
25 June 2014 | by See all my reviews

I always try to judge a movie within its genre, so the reason I rate this movie high is not because it's an Oscar worthy one, but because I think it's a really good one in comparison to other low budget horror movies. The decor and setting are well chosen, a good place that can both be beautiful and scary. The effects and the created 'animal' were also really good done.

The script wasn't very original, in that way it's a typical horror movie, but it had some nice turns and the end was (to me) unexpected, which I like. The actors were pretty good as well, I could agree with the other reviews that Elizabeth Gillies stood out but she also had the most complicated character so the others hadn't as much chance as she did to show different sides. Never the less she did indeed really good and it's always nice to see former kid actors turn out so good as grown ups.

The movie leaves some questions unanswered, which can be frustrating but I didn't mind much. I think they might have done this intentionally to leave room for a sequel. I would be very interested to see it if they make one.
