Has an enjoyable 80s sci fi nostalgia vibe, with a bit of a Cronenberg/Silent Hill influence. The second half of the film fell flat for me, after the silly music video dream sequence. Seemed like they weren't sure how to end the movie so they shoved a few ideas from r/nosleep in there and hoped for the best. I am 100% sure I've read at least 5 "you're in a coma, wake up" stories on Reddit.
Decent little horror movie.
Agree with everyone else on the strong Lovecraftian vibes this film has. Disagree on the "too slow" or boredom factor - the movie builds suspense and sustains it throughout. Nothing is overtly explained, but questions are raised that could lead to you to draw your own conclusions fairly easily.
Let's be real, most horror movies set the bar pretty low. Getting three stars is the best a horror director can hope for unless you're Ari Aster.
