Got halfway through but it's too slow to continue.

It’s decent, just kind of aimless for a large part of the movie. The rich white guy who comes to third world countries to play god made me sick.

Brilliant film - more of a tense watch than a spooky watch, but that’s not a bad thing. Well executed combination of Lao supernatural beliefs with the very real horrors of poverty, classism & colonialism. Really glad I gave this one a watch!
