Secure within a desolate home as an unnatural threat terrorizes the world, the tenuous domestic order he has established with his wife and son is put to the ultimate test with the arrival of a desperate young family seeking refuge. Despite the best intentions of both families, paranoia and mistrust boil over as the horrors outside creep ever-closer, awakening something hidden and monstrous within him as he learns that the protection of his family comes at the cost of his soul.Written by

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...

I'm all for appreciating and enjoying the obscure, but I at least like to have a level of understanding during a movie. This film left me feeling totally underwhelmed. The narrative was such that nothing was explained, therefore nothing understood, and the characters were such that I didn't particularly care what happened to any of them.
The main problem, is that it's very slow, I forgave the first thirty minutes, convinced it would open up, and the action would begin, but it never did somehow, it remained flat throughout.
So disappointed, I really looked forward to this, but was pretty much put to sleep by it. 4/10
