Rated R, Horror

Opinion going in: Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes
Opinion coming out: Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

Language: scratch
Been a week... don't remember any 'issues' so maybe one Mad at worst..

Horror: Shocked Shocked Shocked
NOT the scariest thing ever... but the atmosphere was actually QUITE chilling and fun...

Gore: Shocked
For a horror movie, there is VERY little blood/gore. And what there is happens quick and isn't dwelled on.

Nudity/'Character development' Zero!!!


REVIEW!!!!

First of all... the actor playing 'dad' is Guy Pierce. He is NOT one of the Walbergs... That bugged me half the movie... Looked VERY familiar, couldn't place him...

Exclamation Exclamation Exclamation Potential Spoilers ahead... but not much more than the average trailer would give. Exclamation Exclamation Exclamation

I really didn't expect much going in... (honestly, I do NOT like Guillemo del toro... For all his vaunted 'imagination' most of his monsters look the same. Well... if not the SAME, then at least I know what's his and what Isn't. (Pan's labrynth, Hellboy 1 & 2, and now this...) They just look... unrealistic. Clever and interesting... but not really... 'real'. Like the artwork in the Planescape books. Almost like watching the real people interact with cartoons... Doesn't work for me.

However, This movie DOES touch on some ancient legends. Deals a lot with the old-school fey with elves and fairies and such.... Y'know... Back in the old days where they were not cute and fluffy... they were SCARY, and you did NOT mess with THEM!!

Now... A LOT of this legends, may/may not be all made up... I haven't done much research into THIS legend... but it FEELS like it could be in a book somewhere and that's pretty awesome!!

Naturally, when it comes to ANY horror movie, you find yourself laughing at the multiple instances of charcter stupidity.... classic examples of running up the stairs instead of out the door... never believing kids till your dead... Why don't people just LEAVE... and this show has it's own head-scratchers... but the over all atmosphere and creepiness with the creatures whispering from the vents and under floorboards is just.... FUN!!!

Good movie, check it out!!
