Response to Brother Joe Observes (Original post)

3. The sound was better in the theater, I suspect

What I liked about it:
Successfully evoked a sense of profound isolation
Generally effective atmosphere
Nicely creepy in some parts
Really played up the "completely out of their depth" angle as it pertained to nature overall
Captured the family's vulnerability and helplessness in the face of uncaring nature
Solid performances, especially from the twins

What I felt was lacking:
Pacing was rather slow
No real payoff. At least, none to match the implied arc of the story
Some of the father's dialogue was simply unintelligible

I don't regret seeing it, but it wasn't great. I'd probably watch it again if hit showed up on Netflix.
