This film was extremely confusing.
Elements were good such as some of the cinematography, the production design was great, the story was very weak and poorly written. The pacing was a bit too slow but the 2nd and third parts of the movie weren't very meaningful so it was hard to appreciate the film at all.
meh is the best way to describe this movie
More gory fantasy than horror (think del Toro). Slow to start (nodded off during first 20min several times), but eventually you get to some pretty gory bits. Visually appealing, but story was weak and poorly executed (although the idea itself was quite novel). Character behavior was often illogical, even by horror movie standards. I'd be interested to see more from this writer/director pair, but I hope they put more work into the story; for this kind of film, it needs to be a little bit more than just a vehicle for interesting visuals. Acting wasn't bad. Make-up and visual effects were quite good.
A little strange in a good way.Worth a watch
