not as shocking as i thought it would be but enjoyable
Excellent filmmaking throughout. The first half is an enjoyable drama and then you find out why it's on shudder. Worth your time.
Very disturbing, frightening, and emotional.
an intriguing drama with thoughtful editing, careful pacing and relevant subject matter slowly transforms to be more sisnister than it had entailed. powerful and horrific, in a more primal sense. a must-see for any genre fanatic. pay attention to the sound design and particularly important cuts... ;) not as extreme as I had heard tho! and for the better imo
