MUSIC – 0
CULT – 1

VERDICT – 4/5

 
PROS –
1) This movie would have ended as just another sci-fi horror movie without the character of Mrs. Carmody [played by Marcia Gay Harden]. The entire movie came into life, when this bible-bashing boss-bitch character took the central stage, leading her minions like Jack in Lord of the Flies.
2) Lovecraftian giant creatures from a parallel universe came into our world through some portal thanks to a failed military scientific experiment.
3) The climax is unsettling. Just unsettling.

 

CONS –
N/A

 

QUOTE –
i]
Ollie: As a species, we’re fundamentally insane. Put more than two of us in a room, we pick sides and start dreaming up reasons to kill one another. Why do you think we invented politics and religion?

Amanda Dunfrey: People are basically good; decent. My god, David, we’re a civilized society.
David Drayton: Sure, as long as the machines are working and you can dial 911. But you take those things away, you throw people in the dark, you scare the shit out of them – no more rules.
