The one thing that I admired so much about this movie was the filmmakers respect of craft. Sure it's on a limited budget, the actors are hardly known and the overuse of fog initially is hard not to condemn. Well at least for the less intellectual, considered amongst us. But, there is a flip side too. The director clearly extracts every morsel of what was available to him and places it where it should be, on the screen. The sound is flawless, the set design flawless. The nod to the 70's in colour and tone flawless. The film has a subtle eerie feel to it. Something that is incredibly difficult for a film to deliver on, yet it does in spades. For a film to not rely on the modern ideal of quick, easy scares is amicable and might I say, brave. I went in not expecting to be 'scared' but I certainly was creeped out. The ending was bitter and left a sense of deflation within which I can only owe to the directors subtle build to reach that point. It's a subtle movie, where one might see over awkward smiles as too on the nose they are in fact what simply add to the charm of the film. On the negative side I felt it was too short overall. I also felt that the standout characters Maddy and Charles could have had way more screen time. Jason was probably the weakest actor to me, but then I can't overly gauge if he was meant to be a little weak on purpose? Stand out scenes to me was the escape from the Harbour Inn and that ending (no spoilers) This film could easily become a cult movie.
