Where some are going to see "atmospheric" or "dream-like"; others are going to see "slow", "plodding", and "boring". While the last 15 minutes or so has some nice effects, it's a long haul to get there.
I love the normal amount of candles in this film. seriously though, why have I never seen it recc'd as folk horror? it's FANTASTIC. not least because of the terrifying sound design. and the viscera
Liked this a bunch. Music was pretty avant garde, using overdriven synths and sampled voices to great effect. Really had the vibe of the great Italian experimental horror flicks (Suspiria/The Beyond).
This one was a surprise! Pretty good all the way around, the audio was weird in places but its not to distracting. If you're a Lovecraft fan you'll like this one.
I really liked this movie because it clearly followed in the styles of Italian Gothic horror of the 1960/70s plus Lovecraftian Eurohorror from the same period. Plot is less important than atmosphere, style, and horrific events. Although I found the mid-part of the movie a tad slow and repetitive I was pleasantly surprised.
