BUT, that aside, the film maintains the feel of a Lovecraftian tale. It maintains a creepy environment, and definitely manages to drum up a healthy dose of ichthyophobia. It's also a 'one dark and stormy night' kind of story, which I can definitely appreciate. When a film manages to make a majority of the timeline feel like real time, it's much easier to get sucked into the story.
For anyone who's in the mood for something that builds suspense, I'd recommend this. I'd also recommend it for anyone who needs another reminder why we should fear the old ones. After all, as they say...Ia! Ia! Cthulhu Fhtagn!
