once you see them


it was scary until you see them up close through the door's keyhole.Thats when it stopped being scary and was just silly.I prefer mystery and the unknown to this .

I kinda liked how they looked, but I get what you mean. I find a lot of movies ruin the tension by showing the creature/killer/monster too early. It's better when they hold off and let our imaginations build things up to the worse we can image. Once there is an actually "face" to the terror it loses the mystery of it.

Agreed. The key hole scene caused the movie to lose a lot of points in my book, which the movie had a lot of up until that point.

The scene when they were drawing nearer to the car while Claire was trying to start it was well shot. Perhaps the director will improve upon any mistakes be made in this movie with his next one - assuming he makes another horror movie. I rather liked the movie until said moment. After that, it got a bit tedious.

Limited Budget, no matter the film, I always take that into effect. The film still WORKED. Yea, the scene wasn't great but the film still relied on ACTUAL Suspense to convey most of the Horror.

Thats a very common flaw in these movies. It kills a lot of suspense when they show the monster too early.

reply

Pretty much anytime you see monsters in a horror movie they become laughable.

That was the exact scene where I gave up too. When I realized that an entire hour of the film remained after the "monsters" were definitively revealed, by as contrived a device as looking through a keyhole instead of the window, I just turned it off.

I understand. Thank you for telling me. -The masked bandit
