I just finished watching this. And like previous reviews suggest, it does stay with you. I live in the city, so I'm not much for camping. But in case I ever do so, I will make sure not to make mother nature angry lest I end up like these poor bastards. This movie is creepy. It has a solid script. It doesn't waste time trying to be scary. It allows the actors, who do a good job, to go about their business and the director just captures it all. The beach setting is beautiful, and it easily could be used for a romantic story. And that is what makes it creepy. I won't spoil anything, except to say that it is not a good idea watching this on a stormy night. Unless you enjoy real sound effects to give it that extra dimension. I give it 4 stars only because it is not a movie I would watch regularly which is what a 5 star movie is to me, but I highly recommend it.
I was surprised at the coarse language on the part of the players, esp. Mr. Caviezel. Yes, it's true to the character but shocking nonetheless considering his religious assertions. He refuses to do sex scenes but apparently doesn't draw the line at profanity. I guess it's what actors do.
Having said that, he's a terrific leading man and the "wife" seems nuts for spurning his advances on a romantic beach!
I felt the movie was best when it focused on the couple's troubled marriage. I found that more compelling than the so-called scary element. It was as if the scary thing was just thrown in. The movie was on about an hour before anything weird started happening so you didn't really need that element at all. I think the film would've been good as just a film about a couple getting away to work out their problems.
The acting was very good and is what kept me watching, especially Jim Caviezel. His excitement for the beach makes you want to stay there with him just to see what adventures he finds each day. But as you watch you begin to feel like the wife where you just wanna leave because nothing's happening. In the film she says, "I'm bored!" It's then that I began to feel the exact same way about the film. It just seemed to move so quick in the beginning and stalled when they got to the beach. After so many scenes of watching Peter surf and curse out his wife, you get bored with it.
There wasn't enough action or any action for this to be a suspense. Stuff should have started happening way in the beginning of the movie. It's like the writers tried to be too clever and play tricks with your mind but it fell short. It only ended up being repetitive and the few scary things that did happen weren't scary at all.
Jim saves the day for this film. If he hadn't played his character with such excitement I would've turned it off.Read more ›
