    ★★★½

    While it certainly suffers some pitfalls, overall it’s a fairly new and well-told American style fable. An interesting creature idea (that only suffered a little from limited budget) with humanizing, more drama than horror tones.

    ★★★★

    Sometimes scant budgets and clever use of shadows can make a horror picture much spookier than clear cut monsters.

    ★★★★½

    Excellent direction, with a subtle yet intense performance from Gosling. By contrast, the escalation of violence in the second half of the film is all the more visceral and intense. The visual style and music give that little extra push from good to great.

    ★★★★★

    My favorite Argento film, a true classic giallo gem. Truly unsettling soundtrack, great color palette, and trippy 70s death scenes with cult actors such as Udo Kier and Jessica Harper.
