Not a 1 Star Movie,
This review is from: They (DVD)
A lot of people don't like this film because it doesn't answer every question. It never answers why some people were chosen, and it never gives an answer how they can truly beat the creatures from the night. This is a dark movie in atmosphere and overall story. It is about not being able to beat your demons real or otherwise. Sometimes there isn't an easy answer to beat the monster(s) like in Jason or Freddy films. I would say to give it a chance.

This film is very unsettling for the very reason you say people may not like it: because there is no answer to how these creatures can be defeated.
It is this film"s unsettling element--inevitableness and hopelessness that, for me, makes the movie haunting. I say "They" is very underrated; I give it a thumb's up.

I agree. I love a movie that doesn't tie up everything with a neat little Hollywood bow.

Though I agree with most of your reasoning, it would probably have been wiser to keep some of the mystery more under wraps, yet still let people know, if they want to be scared, and enjoy it, then by all means, it's a good film. If you like triumphant endings, and like to know, by the end of the film what was really going on, or even more, require it to enjoy a movie (because *I* need that), seriously, don't waste your time. Of course, that's JMO.
