total mind trip
ehhh that's all I can say for it
Cannot praise this movie enough--atmosphere, pacing, performances, all of it works in this heady bit of midnight madness that must be seen to be appreciated. If you want a pedestrian and dry flick made by soulless hacks feel free to dial up Hollywood but if you want something special, something different and darkly beautiful this is the movie for you. Cage is the cherry on a very warped and memorable sundae.
Everything from atmosphere and visuals was amazing and totally in love with it. Story was ok, wish I knew more about the cult haha.
Cage is awesome. Excellent cinematography and direction. Basic revenge story done well. If you enjoy Shudder, you should most definitely watch this movie.
