What a brilliant, original and highly enjoyable film. Take a siege situation rather like the classic story of 'Zulu'..but mix it up with a 'Night Of The Living Dead'..'I Am Legend' assault of deep sea dwelling cryptids like those in 'Humanoids From The Deep' (aka 'Monster'..Doug McLure 70's movie). Set the film on a remote island where our two protagonists are stuck for a year with dwindling supplies. Also add a 'Shape Of Water' element but with an abusive inter species relationship..and finally add fantastic actor Ray Stevenson whom I have loved since I first became aware of him in the series 'Rome'. On top of everything the visual effects are very good..the soundtrack is commanding..and the remote island and lighthouse are a major aspect in themselves. And finally the urgency of night coming and what the darkness will bring. Not for everyone but a certain kind of moviegoer will love this as I did. Well worth the time. Can't recommend enough!!
