    A breath of positivity in a bleak world. It may not win awards, but it won me over.

    They've changed/added a few things from the light novels, likely so the movie can go longer (the actual plot in the light novel is kinda doable in one or two regular episodes) and for the other main cast to have a bit more to do, but generally it follows the light novel. Feels like a long episode. Your enjoyment will depend on how much you like the series.

    For some reason it was re-titled as "The Paranormal" in my country, which gives a wrong impression on what's going on if you didn't know what the movie was from. To those who were confused on the "paranormal" things happening, think cosmic horror / Lovecraftian and things, particularly the ending, will make more sense (or as near sense as the sub-genre does).

    That aside, knowing the real title of the movie, I think they got vibe right on this. :) This is the feel and tone (color or otherwise) I kinda expect when I think about Lovecraft's work.
