I talk to daddy when he goes to sleep

Izzy returns from Afghanistan with a mild case of PTSD. She is a doctor, soldier, mom, and an auto mechanic. Her husband Ethan (Christopher Dane ) is a professor at Oxford for studies ancient Polynesian history. He wants to go on vacation to Hawaii and return all his artifacts. They have three children, an older daughter from a previous marriage. Things happen around the house that Ethan claims is just PTSD. Izzy believes otherwise. Son Tommy (Harry McMillan-Hunt ) is acting a bit weird. There are other horror films with a similar theme. In those, you know what is going on. In this one, you have to use the clues which don't lead you to any kind of answer. You know when Izzy knows. Guide: No swearing, sex, or nudity.

Escapism during an uncertain time

There is currently so much uncertainty in the real world and it feels like there is nowhere to go to try and forget what is happening. I usually escape into film, horror specifically, as horror offers me escape from reality into an imaginary world encompassed by the adrenaline of fear, but from a safe distance, where I remain in control. The Unfamiliar offered me this escape, an escape from a once familiar world, now gone. Most horrors these days are a slow burn, so much focus on character development that you lose the plot completely and when the antagonist appears, instead of fearing them you feel empathy instead. With The Unfamiliar, it took me back to the days of old school horror making. What is the evil, will I get to see the evil, does it have a name, will it find me when I am asleep in my bed? I felt as though I was on a roller coaster from one moment to the next, waiting for something to step out from a dark corner when I least expected it. I didn't want to solve the mystery, I wanted to be scared....and I was. This film showcased a mother who would do what it takes to save her family, in-spite of her own safety and sanity. A feeling all mothers would relate to. In saying this I felt a sort of relatability with the lead character and at the same time felt her fear and confusion. Her character was very well written and performed in engaging this feeling from it's audience. The time and effort which has gone into researching myths and legends for the basis of this story has not gone unnoticed and if anything made me want to explore the story even more. In a world where online content feels recycled and limited, this was a great film with a promise of great things to come from the team who delivered it. Well done on a great film, well written, well acted and well directed. Don't read too many reviews, go find out for yourself, you won't regret it. 7/10

NO, rodgers-09462...no.

Okay, rodgers-09462. Your review, and I quote..."Greatest horror movie ever made." REALLY! Tell me, is it comfortable under that rock you live? I'm saying that because you probably don't get out much. Because I can count at least a HUNDRED horror movies that are better than this piece of crap. Lets see about this movie. Boring. Uneventful. No jump scares. At no time was I scared. You get the picture, and by the way, I NAILED it as far as the review. As a game, my wife and I guess at what IMDB gives as a rating after we watch a movie. I guessed 3.9 and it was EXACTLY 3.9. Can I call a crap movie or what. Look, people, if you want a confusing, non-scary horror movie, this is what you want to watch. Me? I'm gonna go drink and try to forget I watched this dull garbage. Peace. P.S. Just so you know I watched it, IMDB, woman returns home from war as a medical doctor and finds out something strange is going on and it's not PTSD. There.
