An unanticipated pleasure. Really nice film where you piece together the reality. Also enjoyed learning some Norwegian Folklore. (Spoiler alert: Hulder). And the ending felt right !
What a pleasant surprise! Great acquisition, Shudder!
Not really scary but I'm glad I watched it because I really enjoyed it.
Quite lovely. Simple in its ambition, direct in its execution w/ very effective music & make-up. Incredibly honest, grounded acting to boot! Low budget done right.
This is a pretty good fantasy film. Not too much, just enough to have you believe it exists in the realm of reality. Reminds me of another good fantasy film, the Swedish film Border.
