I was happy with the ending. So many indie sci-fis build their scripts like a twist is coming and then nothing. With this one I was very happy when they said there was going to a revelation that there actually was one.

The revelation/twist was great, I'm just talking about how it resorts to them outrunning a thing in a car like the climax of Hurricane Heist. Don't get me wrong, I loved Hurricane Heist, but the scene fit that movie a lot better than this one.
First things first, I'm surrealist

Not kidding about Hurricane Heist, by the way. That is a movie that knows exactly what it is, and fulfills its expectations with complete abandon. It's not quite to the level of Emmerich's "2012", but it's damn close. Probably not top ten of the year, but certainly deserves an honorable mention.

Damn, I gotta up my horror intake.

"No, I don't even laugh at seasickness! I happen to regard jealousy as the seasickness of passion."
