Just got back from seeing CTHULHU a few hours ago and after having had a little time to digest it properly, I gotta say that it was....interesting. It is a low budget flick so I was not expecting intense special effects or a blockbuster soundtrack; I was hoping at minimum to get an entertaining story out of the deal. And I got one. I think. The flick kinda rambles at a snails pace but does its best to use this in conjunction with long, dark shots to try and build an aura of creepy paranoia which succeeds to an extent. I wouldn't say it's a really bad film, but it definitely sticks out as an early directoral effort. My main problem was that the focus seemed to be too much on trying to build the atmosphere and not enough on character development; I just didn't know enough about the protagonist to really care about the situation he finds himself stuck in. But whatever was going on with him, I was constantly creeped out by seeing what he was experiencing. And while I had little trouble understanding the concepts behind the plot, there were a couple of times that I found myself hopelessly lost as to where exactly we were in the story. There was quite a bit of wooden acting and there were a few scenes that really could have been trimmed down but despite the problems I had with the flick, I was still entertained by it. I believe if director Dan Gildark and writer Grant Cogswell continue to work and refine their skills, they have the potential to become 'big names' in creepy filmmaking.
