Gunnar receives a strange phone call from his ex-boyfriend, Einar, months after they parted ways. Einar sounds distraught, like he’s about to do something terrible to himself, so Gunnar drives to the secluded cabin where Einar is holed up and soon discovers there is more going on than he imagined. As the two come to terms with their broken relationship, some other person seems to be lurking outside the cabin, wanting to get in…

Two men in a secluded cabin are haunted by their dead relationship.

Doesn't anyone go to college anymore? Art is not always literal.

Slow, beautiful, frustrating, confusing, lonely and desperate. It needed to play out at the speed, but by the end I’m bordering in boredom. And that knockout punch or twist just never came.... or did it!? The ending.... anyone? Any ideas??

3 skulls because it was beautifully shot, the acting was terrific and the music was great. However, the pieces of the movie don't fit together to make a cohesive story. I had an easier time following Inception! Are there ghosts? Is Einar dead the whole time? Then how does he record that video on the go pro? If he wasn't dead the whole time, why is it just a random old man? Or the neighbor? Or the girl at the gas station? Or that red car? Who is the hitchhiker? Who is the guy he keeps seeing, because it isn't the old man... There are many things emphasized that seem to mean nothing. I was incredibly intrigued to keep watching; but, at the end, nothing fell into place.

It was okay... not exactly horror. This movie requires patience & dedication- it's not one of those horror movies you can just scroll on your phone for the first 20min. Overall good Acting and cinematography- the whole ambiance and scenery was nice, but not crucial to my horror viewing. If you're looking for a Gay Slasher try Hellbent from 2004.
