04.12.19Netflix Probably unfair to call it a rip-off of A Quiet Place since it seems to be based on a book, but definitely severely coincidental to come out with the movie where monsters kill people who see them right after the massive success of the movie where monsters kill people who make noise. Still, i'd heard this was terrible and I didn't think it was. Maybe they're mad you never actually see the monsters? That it's just wind a la The Happening? But you know it was pretty terrible in Cloverfield when they added that shot at the end just to show more of the creature... Mostly i was interested in watching this because I'd heard it was very Lovecraftian. It was... more or less. More like Lovecraft-adjacent, but still many of the one guy's drawings were very familiar and I guess the whole concept of insanity recalls Lovecraft by default. Indeed the idea of just seeing something breaks one's mind is definitely right on the money, as is unfathomable beasts triggering the end of mankind. What I didn't quite get is what these monsters' deal was. By the end they seemed pretty malevolent and predatory toward humans but I guess they aren't really physical beings? I feel like if this were 100% Lovecraft then the monsters would've eaten everyone. I think the creatures here just exist to serve the conceit of the film... at least the creatures in A Quiet Place were explained to not have eyes or whatever. But still, not as bad as I'd heard.
