Mediocre movie. Basically a republican wet dream of how to make more kitchen bound, opinionless, stepford wife women but with fantasy elements.

A fine premise spoiled by terrible writing and directing. At one point our protagonist- who is at a silent retreat where speaking is punished and who *has already been punished for talking*- just leans across a table and tries talking to someone while the dudes running the retreat are literally ten feet away. Doesn't cover her mouth or try to be subtle or anything. Am I really supposed to relate to someone who does something so boneheaded? The rest is a mess too: the movie doesn't obey its own rules (loud noises are actually fine sometimes!), plot threads are dropped left and right, and it needlessly turns into a creature feature halfway through. The description on the box was great! Where they *started* going with the original plot would have been *fine!* There was no need to turn it into a garbled mess! Only bumping it up to 2 stars because it's pissing off a lot of misogynists.
