Ratings

MPAA Ratings

  • Rated: (not rated) (perhaps equivalent to an R for Violence, Profanity, Adult Content and Nudity)

Tentacle Ratings

A rough measure of how "Lovecraftian" the work is:

  • S____ (One Tentacle: Debateably Lovecraftian; has almost no direct connection to Lovecraft's work)

Not exactly a "Lovecraftian" film in the sense of being based on any of Lovecraft's work or containing references to his creations, though some viewers may find the location and atmosphere suggestive of Lovecraft's work (an "Eldritch Location" film).

Note: This rating is not intended as a measure of quality, merely of how closely related to Lovecraftian "Weird" fiction the work is.

Reviews

Review Links:

  • Horror News dotnet, (link) - "Except for that ending... I liked it.. and while I really expected something different, Don’t Blink proves that you don’t need a slam bang ending to get your point across, a little ambiguity never hurts.... What I fear more than anything else is this film simply disappearing without a trace, much like its characters. It’s definitely flying under the radar, I hadn’t heard a single thing about it until I received a screener in the mail...."
  • Michael Allen at 28 Days Later Analysis (link) - "Unfortunately, there are only a few clues to be discovered. Mysteries are often unravelled in the ending. However, the ending here is open. Viewers will have to bring their own impressions to the film. Don't Blink is a supernatural mystery, which will leave most people guessing."
  • Branden Chowen at Cinefessions (link) - "Don’t Blink is a good film, but don’t go in expecting any answers, let alone easy ones."
