Always the underrated movies wins...no hype, no overrated cast, a quite pleasant thriller ride with no jump scares or anything but you will be grabbing your legs like if there's someone will catch it.<br/><br/>The cinematography was so cool as it fits with the thriller atmosphere<br/><br/>The first period you will feel like...uh is this a drama after this you will be amazed of the rest of it.<br/><br/>A mix between Malignant with a plenty of horror.<br/><br/>Trust me I'm not that type of giving a hype, and I am telling each word truthfullyYou will find the first part as a drama movie...then it will turn upside down.<br/><br/>It's a modern horror with a real horror the idea itself.<br/><br/>Don't compare such movies with The Conjuring as for me there is no modern horror will beat this exceptional one of a kind scary movie<br/><br/>But this movie will gives you that feel that you are watching The Ring, The GrudgeThis type of horror movies but with a modern touch.
Could've been good movie if you could see it. 75% of the moving Including the last 25% which is you know the climatic ending is completely in the dark I don't know if they were making this movie for blind people but any movie in my opinion that has to shoot in 90% darkness tells me they don't have very much faith in their movie or they didn't have the budget to make up the bad guy or in this case girl.<br/><br/>Anyway decent potential with creepy parents good acting for the actors and a story that kept you in the dark, literally, and compelled you to keep watching unfortunately when the big reveal happened you couldn't see it.

At night, eight-year-old Peter (Woody Norman) hears noises coming from behind his bedroom wall, but his mother and father (Lizzy Caplan and Antony Starr) say that it is the result of an overactive imagination -- or rats. Eventually a voice reaches out to Peter from behind the wall, warning him to be wary of his parents.<br/><br/>There are three things about Cobweb that should make me hate it: the lead character is a young kid, the pacing is extremely slow-burn, and the 'monster' is one of those scuttling, creepy, lank-haired women that have proliferated horror ever since The Grudge and Ringu. However, I am happy to say that I thoroughly enjoyed the film, despite the somewhat derivative plot (I'm not at all surprised that it's from the producers of Barbarian and IT) and one major niggle*.<br/><br/>Woody Norman is actually very good in the central role -- not the least bit irritating and very believable -- and he is given able support from Caplan and Starr as Peter's very strange parents. Director Samuel Bodin maintains a very deliberate pace but ensures that there is enough going on to keep the viewer engaged, with a particularly shocking scene involving soup. Things eventually get crazy in the final act, when we finally get to see what is lurking behind the walls, Bodin delivering plenty of scares and a smattering of gore.<br/><br/>While it's not what I would consider groundbreaking, what it does it does well. 7/10.<br/><br/>*If the 'monster' is strong enough to tear people in half, surely it could break a hole through the wall and escape from its prison.
