I'll start by prefacing that I haven't read the graphic novels yet; also don't judge the film on the trailer. You will regret it. I learned about this movie a day before it released by accident. I'm a horror aficionado and this movie was so below the radar I don't believe anybody knew about it; especially about it releasing in theaters. The story is about an ex-cop investigating a missing persons. The story evolves from there into a nightmare of sorts. The acting was good; though James Badge Dale as James stole the entire film through his incredible performance. The jump scares weren't numbered in the likes of Paranormal Activity or Sinister and etc, but I also believe jump scares are so cliché now. The pacing was very well done; granted the movie is almost 2.5 hours long. The ambient audio was spectacular and honestly one of the best sound designs for a horror film I've ever heard which I know is a tall statement. The cinematography was extremely well shot. If you can imagine a combination of Sinister, Hereditary and It Follows rolled into one, but executed wonderfully then you will have an inkling of what this film is about. I highly encourage you'll to watch it; given 2020 has been so thin on legitimate horror/supernatural thriller films this is a gem in the darkness.
