I know this movie have received a rather bad rap, but I don't give a rip. Step aside negative nancys, I happened to think this movie was rather good.
For instance, there is a monster in the woods. Monster in the woods, people! That's scary. AND it is coming out of the woods - more scary! If you've not seen The Village before then just start watching it with the knowledge that there is a monster in the woods. That's it - let the film do the rest of the talking.
If you have seen this film before and didn't like it then we'll just have to agree to disagree. I found the movie to be clever, thought provoking, and deep.
