I really don't know why Nicholas Cage played in this rather low budget film, he must be desperate. Besides the okay acting that was rather heartfelt, this terrible CGI movie is rather disappointing. It may have been better if they put more effort into the creatures.

Had so much potential, but fell short with the clarity of the monsters and half the scenes were shot in the dark

Most of Arcadian’s potential lies in its performances (including compelling turns from Martell and Soverall) and the design of the monsters.

It truly feels like “The Walking Dead” and now maybe “The Last of Us” have spawned a wave of films about how humans respond when civilization collapses—“Arcadian” is one of the better entries in this growing genre about how screwed we all are.

Not only is director Benjamin Brewer’s Arcadian a good Nicolas Cage movie, but it’s one of the most fun cinematic experiences that he has been a part of in recent memory. It's a work of horror worth taking seriously even as things go gloriously off the rails.
