I didn't know what to expect going into this. The fact that some sites were describing it as a musical horror was intriguing. Honestly, it's one of the best movies I've seen in a long time. Everything about it defies expectations. Every time I thought the credits were about to start rolling, the movie would take a new twist, and I'd be led in another direction. And it felt natural. There was a realism to it. Everything was driven by the characters and their motivations. Nothing felt contrived just to make a plot point happen. This is not a scary movie, but it's definitely horror, and it's a horror that everyone should watch at least once.

Really cool, modern take on the werewolf genre. Would have been an incredible film if the pacing was better.

Good performances and great special effects! Although, this movie did not have to be over 2 hours long!! Could have done without the unnecessary side plots and characters and focused on raising the "unique" child.

Extremely strong cast, really beautiful shot. It may be a little slow, but the way it weaves through genre's is really impressive. Great film.
