Clint Says: Wait for the DVD

 

 

This may be one of the worst titles films ever. Maybe it's just me...and there is always the possibility that I am too stupid to have figured it out...but, at no point in this film does "It" come at night. There are a couple of times something shows up at night, but I wouldn't consider either of those to be "it".

 

Aside from that I'm not really sure if I liked this movie or not. It is relentlessly depressing, has a slow-moving story, very little is ever revealed, and there is not a single moment of redemption. But, it also has incredible acting, high suspense, and sets a very ominous mood. 

 

I would liken this movie to THE WITCH if you happened to see that. It's a film that has some great moments, but on the whole it is an average movie.

 

If you are the kind of person that only sees a handful of films in theaters every year, skip this one. This is the kind of movie that is made for people that see dozens of films every year and can deal with something out of the ordinary.
