I saw this last night at an early screening with some friends. I went in to it not knowing ANYTHING about it exept for that it had monsters in it. I think thats what helped me like this movie, because I had no expectations of it.

Anyway, the whole movie is filmed from a first person view, kinda like Blair Witch Project. I dont think I should tell you much more than that, because I could give something away. Ill just say that it had me LITERALY holding onto my hat. It was crazy, and it was frightening. I MIGHT go as far to say that it was the most ......well, not SCARY, I guess, but...maybe THRILLING is the word Im looking for. DEFFINATLY movie you need to see in theaters.

I've talked to a few others who got into advanced screenings. 

Extremely slight spoilers:

Apparently the monster is seen quite a bit throughout the film, unlike what most people were thinking.  It also seems that the monster design is not even close to what has been posted around the net.

That's an early one that was debunked. We're now going with a fish thingee with a hunch-spineback two tiny arms, two huge arms and a long lizard tail.

My son is going to see it tomorrow in the cinema.  Any creature that can pull the head off the Statue of Liberty and lob it down the street gets my vote   Thumbup  I just hope they explain things.  I hate it when s**t happens and you have no clue why.

Not sure how the whole first person camera Blair Witch thing will be though.  You don't get to see good detail like that and all the jerking around would give me a headache.  Still, I'll be watching it when it comes out on DVD.

I have to give credit to the film's producer's for not giving a bunch away in the previews.  Its genius to me and I may just go out to see this soon.

They don't show the whole thing, and they're low quality, but this is it.

Do not click these links if you don't want to see the monster.

It's getting extremely mixed reviews overall. I'll probably just wait for the inevitable "extended too intense for theaters director's cut of the producer's cut" DVD.

I'm going by Rotten Tomatoes.  Well, actually my bad. It's up to 73%  as of right now. It was staying around 50% up until now.
