Very dark watch, slightly dumbed down for me now i've watched the far bloodier/neon soaked Only God Forgives (Gosling link). Strange scenes including the theatre skin peel, but not necessarily a horror film for me but if your into a vibe and that vibes dark, youll take something from it. Like a reviewer said above dont expect to be thrilled or horrified.
Its a steady kind of vibe. Good watch but don’t expect to be particularly thrilled or horrorfied
loved the photography and settings and weirdness. dull at times but worth a watch.
Don’t be fooled by some of the big names in this, it is slow, pointless and tries too hard to be artsy instead lacks substance.
Loved it! Really great visuals and lighting. It's a little slow but give it a chance!
