I didn’t like this film as much as most on this site. It made me feel sad for the hero character and the parallels to untreated schizophrenia. The two main actors did do a great job. Overall it had unique aspects to some more common tropes, but I was not fully engaged for the whole film.
WHOA!!!!!!!! That was an amazing movie! I want to watch it all over again!
Super fun movie with great effects and an unexpected cosmic twist. A great start to the "Vortex Trilogy".
awesome, clive barker esque
