"The street corner schizin' in the same vein / Oh, but that don't help me, not no more / I'll be wee, so long, I'm dreaming"
"Memory can hold and breathe in but I'm feeling / She turns traffing on stealing something away"
On the surface, the film's very well made, so I guess it's the story's direction I had problems with.
As if symbolizing Charlie's total abandonment of reason, compassion and humanity, this, for me, was the most frightening shot in the entire movie.
Left on the cutting room floor because it didn't look convincing. As a still, it's pure nightmare fuel.
Mayor Vaughn would like to remind you that his kids were on that beach, too.
Despite thin characters and absurdist levels of gory violence, it's a slick, technically superior Action-Thriller which I enjoyed on a purely aesthetic level.
The film's more concerned with depicting a fractured father-son relationship salvaged by the supernatural. This is a troubled-family drama dressed up, albeit rather skimpily, in Horror clothing.
