Now, this is a great horror movie! Although there are things that would have made it better for me, it is a proper grade A horror film which actually gave me goosebumps, can't remember the last time that happened. It's in everybody's list of best horror of 2014 for a reason!
Maybe I'm just not a fan of UFO horror...This was one of those movies that showed a lot of promise in the first half hour, only to gradativally smash it throughout. I felt the director was more worried about showcasing his filmmaking skills than actually telling an interesting story. Definitely my least favorite horror this year (so far!).
Perhaps this would/will be more effective to people who don't know about the real story behind it, because compared to it, the film is pretty mild. I'd rather watch any of the many great documentaries about JIm Jones than to watch this one again.
There really is nothing grondbreaking here, but it is an entertaining way to spend a couple of hours. The premise is pretty interesting and it holds your attention until the quite impredictable end. Above average.
