Had a great time watching this. As a fan of Astron-6, I'm thrilled that its members (together and separately) can fluently move across the horror genre, from silly, to satire, and now to serious. Aside from the distracted performance of the lead, this did everything I wanted it to. Excellent effects, disturbing dialogue, weird premise, and a love for the genre. It's not the best horror film of the year, nor does it try to be. Instead, I think The Void will live in the cult canon, where its practical effects will inspire DIY artists and its imagery will inspire other cult storytellers.
This is available to instant stream on Netflix.
Finally caught this.
Absolutely amazing film. I loved it. It was weird, trippy, downright fucking bananas and I enjoyed every minute of it. Starts right up and never really takes its foot off the peddle. I'm kicking myself for waiting so long to catch it. Definitely gonna purchase soon.
As stated above, it's available on netflix. Please do yourself a favor and catch this when you get a chance if you haven't yet.
I wanted to love it, and there is a lot of really great stuff in it, but something about it just didn't click with me. I think it's because the movie never really bothers to develop it's characters. They're all interchangeable and uninteresting. I struggled to find something to invest in. At times, it felt like little more than a hodgepodge of genre movie rip-offs (The Thing, The Beyond, Prince Of Darkness, Hellbound: Hellraiser II come to mind).
It's not a bad NetFlix watch. The effects and plot are quite impressive. However, I doubt I'd ever revisit it.
I wouldn't want to deter anyone from watching it though, maybe it will click for them in a way it couldn't for me?
I liked it more than most modern horror movies. Yes, it had tinges of all the films that CPT HOOK mentioned, but you really want to know what it reminded me the most of? Silent Hill.
Agree with this review. Personally I found the film very slow which is bad for a movie with a 90 minute run time. The Thing creature/effects were okay but I caught the baby angle right from the beginning of the film. Lots of promise but it didn't pan out for me. Fortunately Netflix saved me spending money on this title.
I totally dug it. Good pace and atmosphere. The creature effects are gnarly,* those cultists just standing there is quite eerie, and I had fun spotting plot elements lifted from golden age horror movies. It does indeed borrow liberally from other movies, but come on, movies like Sinister, The Conjuring, and Lights Out are also the same ideas recycled over and over. Now, those three movies didn't really hit me in the gut, but on principle, I won't knock a borrowed idea if it's enjoyably done.
*That unfortunate creature in the dungeon of abominations ramming its face against a spike over and over? That's one of the coolest/nastiest images in newer horror in a while.
I saw The Void four months ago in the theater and once on Blu-ray. Enjoyed it just as much the second time. I am not yet planning my October horror marathon, but it's very likely I will watch The Void again in two months.
