User Reviews: This was beautifully created and a suspenseful setting but was deeply lacking in storyline. So little actually occurred that I was already confused 40 mins in. If it weren’t for Joel Edgerton I would have shut this down 1/3 of the way in. It was confusing, incongruent and frankly a little boring. I patiently waited though and saw it through. Alas the climax was so disappointing I was in shock… and it didn’t even happen at night!!! What the hell was coming at night??? Nothing came… even during the day. Not cool… not a horror film, barely a thriller, just a shame.
