Also, I loved the monster, the camerawork was great, and it was unpredictable in all the best ways.
Agreed, Q is fantastic. I didn't like it the first time I saw it, but Cohen's off-beat style has grown on me over the last few years. And of all the one's I've seen (probably less than half of what's up there), out of all the one's that I now like very much (God Told Me Too, It's Alive, It Lives Again), Q is at the top of the list. It's pretty hysterically funny at some points, too ("Eat him! Eat him! Ca-runch! Ca-runch!").
