On more than one occasion in the film, a lead character uses gasoline as fuel to start a fire, but then carelessly leaves the gas can in dangerously close proximity to the open flames as he lights his matches and starts the fire. In real life it would have been extremely likely that fumes from the gas can would have ignited, being so close to the open flames, and possibly caused serious injury or death to the lead character or others nearby.

Can you hear me? Dad, can you hear me?
[nodding a weary yes]
You don't need to fight it. You can just let it all go. Everything's okay.

I love you, dad. I do. I'm so sorry. Oh, god...

It's like I went in to watch an apple but ended up watching an orange.
The movie does not tell you much about what's going on, yet leaves you to believe there is a sickness that will be the focus of the horror. Technically it is, but not how I thought when I enter the movie. It's a horror movie but it's more of a psychological thriller. One of those one set areas films where it's all about character interaction and how good the actors are in it.
They were pretty good. I was expecting it to be darker, or maybe a different type of dark with more emphasis of the darkness of the monster which I did not get. More like the darkness of the soul of man, when put in a desperate situation.
Still well played to the very end, but it can be a little iffy for those expecting something not so different in there horror.
