kate_nepveu: sleeping cat carved in brown wood (Default)

DVR'ed, thanks to the AV Club noting it was running on CW a few weeks ago. This is the low-budget British alien invasion flick from a couple years ago that got a lot of critical buzz.

Good stuff, nothing stunningly ground-breaking but makes excellent use of a limited budget (see: the creature design) and a good cast. The setting is also very specific, which contributes significantly to its success. Roger Ebert's review is good; I don't know if the theatrical version is more horror-like, I have a pretty low tolerance for such things and was okay with what we saw. (TV has the advantage of subtitles. Also, I almost wish they'd bleep expletives rather than just mute them, because it makes it more obvious that something is missing.)

Now I almost want to re-read Broken Homes, which is also about council estates in South London (and has a lot about architecture and history).
