"Director Jeffrey A. Brown's The Beach House draws more than a little inspiration from H.P. Lovecraft's The Colour Out of Space, and gives it an ecological spin. At least this one doesn't have Nicholas Cage's overacting."
"I'm not usually a fan of 'Found Footage' movies....a poorly focused hand-held camera does nothing to enhance plausibility. It just pisses people off."
"What makes Begotten a truly unique film, is that for all its simplicity it achieves what most religious horror films fail in their overly ambitious approach. Faithful to the 'silent movie' there's no spoken dialogue, but there are no captions either (discounting a vaguely expository opening).
Regardless, Begotten is effective because it focuses on the non-human. God, Mother Earth and the Son of Earth are frightening spectres, but what happens to them is equally horrific."
