This film is SO powerful. Legally Blonde (2001) invented cinema. Reese Witherspoon created acting. Ali Larter's finest role, before Final Destination. Brilliant and empowering with an uplifting soundtrack!
I think Garland has a great gift for taking something beautiful and making it terrifying - and that's essentially the basis of The Shimmer. Even the flowers/plants who are growing into shapes of people look astoundingly beautiful, yet absolutely frightening at the same time because of the idea behind it. The visuals vs the atmosphere in this film are just insanely perfect.
