This was an interesting watch towards the end as we get better scenes with screaming heads and good use of lighting and darkness; slow burn from beginning to middle, hard to tell the girl was dead which threw me off at first. The premise is very cool and the set design and SFX are really cool (I know people are gonna complain about the practical effects but you always see CGI in most movies so why would I complain when it's practical and decent looking). I absolutely loved the production design here and some shots were fairly interesting, but I think it lacked a bigger budget that would have helped them produce more action shots and complex scenes with more actors (we are teased by the castle with festivities going on but no actors). Overall, okayish, but leaves you wanting more... Feels like a teaser showcase to a longer episodic TV series. It's titular and has a good premise for it, so why not make it a Horror TV show? Anyhow, 3 skulls out of 5.
It was a ok movie … cool ending
A lot of potential, but turns into a slow burner that leaves you wanting more quality scenes.
There is a great movie in here, I would be willing to bet the original script had way more activity in here. You can definitely tell this movie was absolutely massacred by a lack of budget.
I didn’t hate it, but I didn’t love it. I wouldn’t recommend it. The beginning wasn’t bad, if it wasn’t for the blood I wouldn’t have been aware the girl was dead as her eyes were shifty. The main actor wasn’t bad. You could see the fake in all the props and the monsters alive and dead. Plus the actions of things (ex. The window and the jar (when he returned), the bag of the alive severed head etc) didn’t make sense. The fight was short and lame. Interesting ending I guess. Trailer looked way better
