Plot: A biologist signs up for a dangerous, secret expedition into a mysterious zone where the laws of nature don't apply.
Frightening, pictorially surreal and quite interesting. The characters are perhaps rather 2D and there's a totally unnecessary sub plot. It adds nothing in my opinion, but there is a real pathos in the brief exchange between the husband and wife at the end, and it's a killer but I won't say what it is.
The invader though, so far as you can tell (or is it marooned?) is just doing what we would do in its shoes. Just doing what it needs to, trying its best to settle in and navigate its new world, and make itself at home.
Which does not make it one less bit creepy and frightening.
