GREAT!!! Also watch DRAUGHTMAN'S CONTRACT!!!
Complete and utter garbage! Do not waste your time. Horrible acting, horrible story just plain s**t. If your into watching 2 hours of some loud obnoxious guy screaming about how to eat food in a low budget poorly shot bore fest, This is your movie. Not even horror.
Wait, this is pure art house, there is no horr... oh... OH....
The movie has stuck with me for years. I did not remember the plot until the rewatch, but I remembered that it is stylistically superior to most every other movie. Great addition to the Shudder family.
Love this fucking movie. Making Shudder quite the classy little streaming service are we!
