As a father I found this movie extremely disturbing. 4/5 skulls for sure!
Not bad ☠️
I quite enjoyed this movie. The story is not really special, but I loved the acting, cinematography, and music. The color palette throughout was also quite beautiful. It does have some really disturbing moments.
A moderately effective haunting shocker with lush giallo imagery and plenty of horror homage. Rupert Evans was slightly out of his depth trying to portray the unravelling dad, but the cast is bolstered by some standout female performers.
suck please do not be so rude
