Lost potential

This movie had a lot of potential going in, very classic monster movie feel. The relationship between the mother and daughter has great character dynamic as well. However, everything is basically thrown away in the last act. It's a shame that a lot of talented people did so much apparent hard work to make this movie of good quality, only to have it all trashed by terrible writing in the last act. The movie would have been better had they ended it when the ambulance went off the road. That wouldn't be a great ending but it would be better than the trash they tacked on at the end. The whole monster doesn't like light thing is clamy and not consistent in the movie. The Mom suicide/sacrifice is unmotivated. The girl stopping the monster in midair with an aresol can, is just bad all the way around. The monster can stop a moving ambulance, but aerosol yielded by a little girl is too much for it. Then is the monster made of purely flameable material, because it went up like a bonfire with just a kiss of flame? Really? All this throwing away of a good movie for some half baked, backwards message that little girls are empowered to fight the monsters on their own.

The creature of the coming-of-age lagoon.

7/10 A decent little movie set in one location with strong performances. Great cinematography and small-scale conflicts make it very personal for the audience. The monster itself is scarier in a metaphorical context rather than a physical one. The tension is sometimes interrupted by flashbacks, which are heartwarming. If you enjoy movies with deeper meanings and themes, you'll probably enjoy this one.

WOW! I'm blown away!!!

I just watched this on a whim on Amazon Prime. I thought it was just going to be another schlock monster movie with bad acting, bad script, bad everything. This was not only one of the best Horror Movies I've seen in a long time, but also one of the best films I've seen in a long time. I had to give it a 10 for my appreciation of the utmost talent involved here. From Direction, script, editing, and SUPERLATIVE acting. I actually cried at the end, and that is no mean feat. I rarely review any film on here, but this film is just special. Yeah it was an analogy, a metaphor, and we got an actor in a monster suit, but I remember the good old days. Crappy CGI would destroyed the effect, and have made it less poignant. I must say the little girl who played Lizzie is one of the best young actresses I've ever seen. But her mom was just as good. She traversed a wondrous arc between the lowest to highest range. I just loved this film. This is not a movie, it is a film. There's a difference. This one resonates. I'm looking forward to seeing so much more from all involved. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
