More than a touch of David Lynch here I thought, especially in the characterisations of Bully and Dave. Felt a bit rushed at the end and ultimately a triumph of style over substance. I enjoyed it though.
It was okay but for me a bit misleading I though there would be way more fantasy elements and was waiting for them the entire movie they definitely could’ve used the underground city more but overall was an okay movie.
Really interesting setting, and some good acting, but the plot was severely lacking and the ending didn't hold together.
Really well done atmospheric film that is slight thriller and horror touched with an other worldly feel.
Surreal atmosphere with some lovely camerawork.
