I wouldn't call it horror.
Moves at a good pace. Soundtrack could be a bit jarring but that seemed intentional. Seemed to rely more on jump scares than tension. Liked the theme, would like to see it explored more.
Quite slow; quite tragic; quite infuriating. It is a bleak film, from the atmosphere to the events to the run time. Fascinating at times; it is due at least one viewing.
Score and atmosphere are wonderful. The pacing is garbage and the pretension isn't earned by any insight that I could glean. Maybe I'm wrong. I would say it's worth a repeat view, despite being such a slog to get through. I probably won't any time soon. But it certainly wasn't a bad movie.
It was really off the beaten path & I was at the edge of my seat trying to find out what happened but then the ending was just such a let down in that it didn’t go anywhere and was confusing almost. Shucks.
