Thanks for the review.
Note: This review DOES contain spoilers.
I watched this last night for the first, having never heard of it. I really enjoyed it. The atmosphere, the lack of sound, the characters, everything
was very real considering it's a horror film. I'm not a fan of over the top action or CGI laden movies, and even though the creatures were CG, their
appearance was so sparse that it was fine. The lack of spoken language or any sound was very pleasing to me.
One thing that I started to wonder, plot-wise, is if the family knew that louder sounds can mask their own (such as the river and water fall scenes),
why they didn't either move somewhere closer to one (such as a roaring river), or create a constant diversion/distraction like with the fireworks. I
guess any *new* sound would be seen as suspect by the creatures, but natural sound that has already been in place...
At the end, which I liked, without knowing how many creatures there were, only the "three confirmed," I wondered how many there actually were, and if
there would be enough ammunition to kill them all. I was ultimately reminded of Mars Attacks.
I too am interested in a prequel, how the population first learned of them and how the creatures first started preying sounds, and did they simply
kill them, or eat them....?
