Although the plot is simple, and the story initially could be seen to inattentive viewers as just another haunted house movie, the final result turned out to be very good, especially when it comes as a product of the Rasmussen brothers, usually more associated to cheap and horrible productions. Being told in a calm and decent manner, with a well-paced, cohesive storytelling, in a profusely dark atmosphere and a very coherent and realistic point of view, the movie comes as a surprisingly good result, showing a decent degree of seriousness and professionalism, as well as an impressive increase in their artistic optics of making movies.
After their previous movie, Dark Feed, turned out to be disastrous, The Inhabitants proves itself to be a great degree of experience for the Rasmussen brothers, that seems to be leaving a mediocre and amateur category of filmmaking, to step high into a semi-professional degree of excellence in the movie industry, showing a great pace of evolution in the process, especially when it comes to focus, and the way they told the story. The actors in this movie are also way more skilled, to the point they do not disappoint the audience, in any moment. Technically, there are several improvements as well, especially when it comes to camera motion techniques, and the cinematography, stylistically realistic, compelling to high standards and convincing.
The final result of The Inhabitants movie turned out to be very satisfactory! It came out as a very good conventional horror movie. A good, compelling story, no excesses, good acting, attention to details and a great development of the technical devices. Who knows? From mediocre filmmakers, the Rasmussen brothers have now greatly improved their work standards, and they might impress us all with very good movies, in the near future. To their more recent effort, The Inhabitants, they certainly deserve three and a half stars, out of five. For a team of filmmakers that until recently could hardly have one, this is quite an accomplishment! That they certainly deserve.
