    hmm, could be interesting, I think I'll wait and see what the general opinion is on it first before dipping in.

    Looks like fun. Kind of wish it wasn't teenagers on the plane, but whatever. I'll see it! :)

    Either the guy on that poster is really tall or that plane is very small.

    I am curious and intrigued. This looks like it could be good - I hope the Lovecraftian feel isn't just in my head though.

    It looks like it'll be CGI'd like mad.

    I am watching this as I write this. I just don't give a crap about any of the characters. Just imagine a small pplane full of assholes. Whoever wrote this crap is clueless. I've already lost count of the amount of times I hear a cuss word. At the 35 min mark I wish the monster would eat them already.

    I thought this was decent enough. I'm a sucker for limited settings in movies and this one delivered on that account.
    Has a Twilight Zone vibe going.
    Worth a looksy.

    The characters were all annoying as hell, and the reveal and ending left much to be desired. I did like a few things about the film, but a simple loose "bolt" in a plane? Talk about the filmmakers not doing their research!

    Yeah the "reveal" was pretty lame and the saccharine ending even worse. But until then I was definitely enjoying the Lovecraftian atmosphere, though Katatonia is right about the characters being annoying. Should've spent less time trying to "develope" them and more on the sheer terror of their situation. Being stuck on rickety little plane in the middle of a storm should provide more than enough juicy fright material, let alone with a tentacled horror menacing on top.

    i thought this was pretty decent, actually, ending and all. loved the look of the monster, and the way it was used/shown throughout. some really great images that stick in your mind (like where she's being pulled out the front). the characters were a bunch of assholes, and it pissed me off that the girl we're supposed to be rooting for was such a bitch, but the ending kind of made up for that. the three secondary characters, while assholes, were fairly interesting assholes. they were jerks to each other, but i didn't find them annoying. for a modern piece of supernatural horror, i was pretty damn impressed.

    I'll give that it was okay up until the twist--but then it quickly became one of the worst Donnie Darko inspired pieces of crap I've ever encountered.

    Saw this tonight after grabbing it for $2 from blockbuster. The first 30 minutes or so were pretty atrociousness. Terrible, forgettable actors with equally bad dialogue. The casting director should never work again. Saying that from then on, I was surprised how much I started to enjoy it. It had a twilight zone type vibe to the story and I even dug the twist ending and thought it was pretty original. Overall I would recommend it.
