interesting and atmospheric - it left me with perhaps more questions than i went in with, but I don't think that's a bad thing in this case. it reminded me a bit of both Get Out and Annihilation, with its own slow, creepy Catholic spin.

Atmospheric movie, not so much in the scare department but unique in storyline. Beautiful scenery. Worth a watch.

Superb. Strange, intense, and one I find myself thinking about even months after watching. Very well done.

An imaginative take on the "missing persons" phenomenon as well as the classic Ghost Story. A priest carries a dark gift which is then exploited by an unscrupulous entrepreneur. Unlike many of today's Horror films, this one ends on a satisfying hopeful note.

It's a very curious film. Slow and dark, it tempts you to ride along to see what happens. The score is really good. It's more of a fantasy movie than a horror though.
