I’m thinking Noe should stick to dance. Leave the witchy stuff to us pros.
The scariest part of this movie is worrying you’re going to have an epileptic seizure
First off, if your are epileptic, don’t watch this. Other than that is really was boring, I just fast forwarded to the end to see the strobe lights. It’s has very artsy French 80´s vibe but it suuuuuucked.
As much as I hated watching it, it actually captured the feel of a witch-burning production better than any straight depiction ever could. I always imagined the accused gets a compassionate visitor to their cell detailing the horror they are about to go through and how to deal with that anxiety; that's here. Then there's the incompetent executioners and the mob and everyone else playing their part but just adding to the anxiety. Then the burning; at some point the pain stops for the accused witch, but here that pain is stretched along in a terrifying sequence of sound and light that orange flames on a screen could never adequately communicate. God save the witch.
