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.
Love the filmography!
Good flick. Don't believe the haters.
To be honest, I turned it off with half an hour to go. Slow, no real confrontation from the antagonist, certainly not scary (ominous, maybe), slightly pretentious, the plot simply exists but never really goes anywhere.
Not exactly a horror, but brilliant, beautiful cinematography, strong performances, and interesting concept. Nature, lichen, mushrooms. I appreciate smart, subtle films like this.
