    Does anyone have the faintest idea why this movie was called "Pod"?

    An intense indie horror film, Pod delivers some frightening thrills. The story follows a brother and sister who go to their family lake house to stage an intervention for their other brother who seems to be suffering from paranoid delusions about the government and pod creatures; but after a mysterious attack they start to question if he might be right. The script is fairly good at creating intrigue and suspense, however the plot kind of fall apart at the end. And the acting is rather poor. Still, for a low-budget horror film, Pod is creepy and delivers some terrifying scares.

    Another movie where I can't really understand the discrepancy between the critic reviews and the audience reviews. Granted, to be fair, there are only six reviews available for this movie, so it's probable that, if more critics reviewed this film, that its percentage of positive reviews would go down to, say, 40%. Let's just get this out of the way, the film isn't gonna reinvent none of the genres it borrows from, the cabin in the woods, conspiracy thriller and sci-fi creature features, but I think it combines all of these elements into a smart and compelling little movie. I will say that the conspiracy aspects of the film, to me, are the most derivative, it's all the same 'government performing experiments on soldiers', aliens, all that good stuff. But, again, I think the movie does a good job at presenting it in a fashion that's enjoyable and does really add to the film. You're not sure whether Martin, the brother with mental instability, is telling the truth or if it's just another one of his conspiracies, as Lyla and Ed have had to deal with this on multiple occasions. I thought Brian Morvant, who plays Martin, did a really good job in the role. He's not perfect though, there are parts where I felt that he was overacting, but, by and large, he's really convincing in this role. Lauren Carter and Dean Cates, who play Lyla and Ed respectively, also did a solid job. Not great or anything, but they were good enough. I think the film got the reception it did with the audience because of the fact that, say, half, or slightly more than that, of the film is everything leading up to the reveal of what's in the basement. It's Lyla and Ed listening to Martin's story and trying to come up with ways to help him. So I think that might've hurt the film to some people, even though Martin's storytelling is fairly manic. It's not dull. If listening to Martin was dull, then I'd understand, but it's not. Maybe the setting also has to do with it. It all takes place, or most of it, inside the cabin. I don't know why that would make you enjoy a movie less, but there you go. I think the fact that the film isn't entirely unique is probably most to blame. I've been guilty of this, sometimes a film's lack of originality is a drawback. But that also covers a great variety of things, I won't dislike a good movie just cause it's not original. However I will dislike an unoriginal movie for substandard acting and storytelling. The fact that it's not original, while a factor, isn't as important in the long run as putting together a quality movie with either relatable/interesting/entertaining characters being put in situations that lead to intriguing story elements. And I think this movie satisfies at least one of those requirements. Ed and Lyla might not be the most compelling characters, but the situations they find themselves in are intriguing enough that I want to see where the film is headed. Also, in my opinion, the film is well-written. It might not live up to all its potential, but it's still well put together film. The last act is also quite good. I think it ends up almost exactly the way I imagined it, but I still enjoyed it. So yea, I thought this movie was pretty good. Nothing that will change how you view horror movies, but it's short and it does a good job at building tension, so I'd recommend it if you have Netflix.
