I enjoyed it a lot, great acting emotional tension, gorgeous scenery. I didn't really understand the ending, though.
Beautful scenery and story. Loved the character development between the two and was wondering about Einar throughout; there were some elements that made me wonder if he was a ghost, etc. A ton of dread in the last half, very slow build which was nice. Honestly I would have given this 5 stars if the ending had been satisfying but to me it wasn't at all. (I mean the very last couple min.)
Atmospheric but not at all scary. About an hour and 20mins of character development and story and under 30 of anything vaguely unsettling.
This film emotionally gutted me.
it's more like a relationship-drama with horror elements. It has one or two legit scares towards the end and a kind of dense atmosphere throughout, but it's advertised scarier than it is. Still a well made movie, but also not super inventive or new. The symbolism is quite obvious so the twist in the end isn't like super surprising. It feels very inspired by "Don't look now".
