Don’t go into this expecting full-blown horror and jump scares - if you do, you’ll be disappointed and will miss out on enjoying the beautifully nuanced characters, performances and a classic morality tale. A study in the power of greed, temptation and selfishness, which just happens to have a supernatural backdrop; the real and meaningful horror stems from the pain we as humans are capable of inflicting on those around us - just as it should be

The horror of classism and racism. The casual way everyone in Nok's life treats her like a dumb animal, even when they may not mean to, and the way she gradually becomes cruel herself. Worth the watch!
