I enjoyed the pace of the movie; slow burning movies that reveal a descent are a treasure. The cinematography provoked an ominous feeling to seemingly ordinary objects that kept me guessing. The characters were emotionally investable. Isolation, disorientation, secrets and folklore provided themes that carried the movie until the end. The lights were definitely an intense addition that demonstrated the power of nature.
Creepy. There should be a mystery there but it's not clearly defined as to what the mystery even is. The flashing visuals are worthy of the seizure warning. Very little dialogue or character development. It just came off as confusing to me. Some narrative "inner" dialogue from the main character might have helped.
Creepy, mysterious, beautiful.
Interesting, but terribly paced.
Really nice to look at, has legitimately scary moment's and is not without humor either. The reason for three skulls is the movie could have done better than the very childish approaches to nature and humanity's relationship with it. It was the idealistic freshman dialog coming through adults, coupled with, and set against a cartoonish bad guy with too little development to even consider him a character. The most compelling aspect of tbe movie got the leat amount of attention. Also the strobe scene felt eternal, we get it, you have production software. While writing this I lowered it to two skulls. This movie actually kind of sucks.
