OK, so I really hated the first maybe 6 minutes of this movie, and almost turned it off because of that. It was super pretentious, and arty, and suuuuper understated, which can be good, and can also (as was the case here) be bad and boring and annoying. BUT. They really saved themselves. This has ended up being super interesting and creepy. This dude Wyatt’s kind of losing his marbles a bit and begins to believe he’s involved in some sort of extraterrestrial and/or supernatural attack, and all of this unfolds while he’s sleeping on the floor of a friend’s house. Hilarity ensues! Oh, wait, no, not hilarity - what’s that other thing? - oh yea, creepy aggressive paranoid survivalist preparation. THAT’S what ensues. Things really come to a point when Wyatt decides that his buddy’s girlfriend is one of “them.” Anyway, watch the movie, I think you’ll like it.
