Reviews [click links to read more]:

The Beach House is an atmospheric triumph from newcomer director Jeffrey A. Brown. He crafts a slick tale of invasion and destruction that’s both intimate and cosmically grand. The Beach House is both a loving throwback to monster pictures from yesteryear, but at the same time, it helps the genre evolve to new places.” Bloody Disgusting

“The movie begins with breathtaking and eerie shots of the seafloor, a menace compared to wide shots of the unmysterious waves and beachfront. Not only are the unknown ocean depths terrifying and set up in the film as a foil to the perilous infinity of outer space, but this concept stayed disappointingly restricted solely to comments along the lines of it must be something in the water.Scary Movie
