Based off of Adam Nevill’s novel of the same name. Second film based off of one of his novels, the first being Ritual. If the creatures in these two movies are faithful to the novels, then I need to start reading this guy’s work because he is obviously in the business of nightmare fuel.

They changed the protagonist of the story to an undocumented immigrant, which seems like a genius move to be honest. It adds to the stress of the character being limited in places to live and makes it almost impossible to seek help.

It’s for all those reasons I wish I had liked this more. It’s an original concept, nice performances and socially relevant. Some of it just doesn’t work though. Pacing issues and barely any explanations to speak of. There’s having an air of mystery and then there’s doing a bunch of shit with no explanations.

Degrees of Separation from Last Movie or Mini-Series:
