i watched the movie called Monsters a while back. (checked my netflix viewing activity and it was september 29th)
it was great. it was understated and subdued, and the threat was all in the atmosphere. i suppose it was more about the people than the monsters themselves, but i still feel like it was a great sci-fi example.
i was in just the right mood to watch it. i wanted something without jump scares. i wanted more of a soft dread feeling. i loved it. if you’re looking for fast-paced stuff, this movie is not for you. but like i said, i was in a total state of torpor, and wanted to watch something slow and kind of sad. this movie did it.
