I absolutely loved it. It’s not horror in the traditional sense, but rather a dark, psychedelic Irish fairy tale. Elements of folk horror mixed with supernatural suspense. Incredibly atmospheric with some truly unsettling imagery — and a great soundtrack, too. Nature is beautiful, tempting, overwhelming, and dangerous. Respect it.
3.5. Great atmosphere and wonderfully original. Love it or hate it kind of thing.
Extremely boring. I like plenty of slow films, but they have to go somewhere eventually. The description of the movie is very inaccurate and misleading, there is almost nothing going on here except for a man taking drugs and losing his mind in the woods. The cinematography is impressive at times but not enough to save this movie, which would be a decent short film at best.
If you want a slow, scenery-filled, artsy-fartsy way to waste 93 minutes, you've come to the right place.
