In other news...the movie consisted of some jump scares. It didn't really advance the myth in any meaningful way and I was right that this is one of those things that doesn't easily translate to film. He works far better as a campfire story and as a figure from modern folklore. It's something of a lost art these days, but it's amazing when someone shares a good folk horror story by a fire, or while walking at night in the woods. I've had that experience a few times, and they all stand out to me, especially the time I was at the Omaha Tribe Reservation. Well, that's just me. I don't necessarily regret watching that movie, though. I mean, he is a pretty cool specimen and there's a reason why we're fascinated with him. Personally, I was hoping that he would infect someone to murder her loved ones, but that didn't happen. Turning into a tree, though, that was cool. I will give credit to the idea that he permanently cocoons children alive within trees some points I also liked that he could stalk people over the internet. So long as it gives some people ideas, people can all add their own favorite elements to the lore when they share their version at midnight. Therefore, I don't discourage seeing it, but not for the horror of the film itself. Namely, it should help you develop your own horror stories once you've left the theaters, horror stories that are even better.
Such as this one. I honestly think that I've perfected the myth with this right here. It just gives me the shivers.
