Wonderful slow psychological horror. Sean Harris is an absolute masterclass in acting. Real tropes of classic British horror. Creepy, unrelenting and oozing with atmosphere.

a great, slow-burning, psychological horror with genuinely terrifying visuals, intense acting and a handful of well-done jump scares for people that prefer that sort of thing.

An absolutely brilliant, chilling, absurdist masterpiece which doesn’t solely rely on the horrifying puppet. A brilliant buildup incorporating psychological elements that appeal to innermost fear. Do not expect a conventional horror film, you will not find it here. You need to watch, you need to think. That’s where the pure horror lies.

A really grubby, claustrophobic character study- wasn't quite my cup of tea, but very well executed.

Total pile of 💩 watching paint dry would have been more entertaining
