Interesting. The best part was the actor looking like Matthew Mcconaughey! Was waiting for a good twisted ending, but there was none. 😔
I enjoyed this one although it feels very much like a short that was extended to a full length film. Normally I'd refer to the pacing as more of a "slow burn" but honestly this one just feels plain, deliberate and slow. You REALLY get to see this guy poking around the house and that's ok except by the last third of the movie it starts to feel a little daunting. That being said, it's an interesting take on religion, whereas instead of bringing loved ones together, it has the opposite effect and pushes them apart. Fans of arthouse/psch horror will appreciate this movie, everyone else looking for terror, gore, and a nice clean ending best stay away!
great set design for an ok movie
Moody, brooding and gothic. Though it moves very slowly but kept my attention through the whole thing. It's not often a single-character film turns out as well as this one did.
Evocative; Beautiful and deeply Melancholic. Comments on the strained relationship between mother and son when estrangement takes hold and the unerring guilt that follows. Incredibly slow paced but utterly commanding and worthy of Your time.
