John and the Hole

This was more interesting than "good" and I'm still not sure how I feel about it, but I'm glad I saw it and still (mostly) liked it. The concept was much better than the execution, so it was really disappointing in that regard. There is a great cast, excellent build up, and so much potential, but then it felt like it didn't know where to go (or, that where it wanted to go just wasn't satisfying).

The film was almost nothing like the trailer made it out to be (which should never surprise me at this point)… it was definitely not a horror movie; there was a lot of creepiness (even crossing into sinister territory), but the tone was too light and almost humorous at times. I think calling it a parody is not accurate, but was going for something like that and just didn't get there. I'm left more confused than anything, and it seems like a sorry waste of the premise in the end.
