Short, sweet, and effective. Love a good “what makes us human?” creature feature! Some of the acting is questionable
Short, sweet, and effective. Really well
If you enjoy whimsical folk tale-esque stories this is very much for you. Idk what Border is the other reviews mentioned, but it reminded me of Pans Labyrinth in the way folklore intertwines with the randomness, and sometimes evil, of humanity. very interesting!! I liked it.
It's always adorable when someone takes a shitty internet video and builds an entire movie around it. Especially when done well.
Great folk monster film. 10/10
