Nothing happens and I didn’t care about any of the characters. The story and the creature could have been cool but it clunked along predictably with nothing unique or new to say. Atmosphere with no substance.
Has some interesting ideas, but fails to do anything interesting with them. Despite the emphasis on Poe and the shout-outs to his works, you could change the main character to another person and it wouldn't really affect much in the story. The visuals are nice but, as other people have noted, get so dark in places that it can be difficult to see what it happening.
Way way better than I ever expected. Pretty good movie
Good mystery that leaves you guessing what exactly is going on, and feels like it's own authentic lore akin to Sleepy Hollow.
