The beginning atmosphere is quite good and I do love a slow burn horror, but the whole movie is awkwardly paced and the protagonist herself is bizarre. The ending is a little ridiculous- the reveal itself isn't remotely a surprise if you've ever seen a horror movie before. And lastly, there are several plot threads that go absolutely nowhere and end up unfinished. All in all, very disappointing. I'm puzzled by the great reviews this film gets.
What a piece of shit man..........
It takes one hour and ten minutes before anything actually happens. Then, what happens is exactly what you thought for the first hour and ten minutes was going to happen. I'm pretty sure a twist or surprise reveal should actually be a surprise. If I hadn't been working while I had this running on my monitor I would have nodded off. Snore.
I was mildly entertained by the first part, but man it was slow as hell. I skipped forward here and there. The last 20 min were amazing but I just didn’t much care about the characters enough to fully appreciate it.
Great gothic horror action movie!!! Must have inspired Tarantino and Rob Zombie. Has a Hammer horror feel too it also.
