If you like creepy supernatural thrillers or fantasy horrors like I do, definitely check this one out
I was genuinely surprised by this film. Its starts slow but stick with it. In the first 15 mins it's mainly an introduction to the lead character, a man called Frank who soon finds himself on a bizarre journey to find his dead ( or is she ) wife.
As noted by some other reviews, the quality of acting does vary, but it's never a distraction. In fact, the characters are excellent and this is one of the highlights of the film. The super natural element of the plot really adds another dimension - quite literally in some places. One moment it feels like a crime drama and the next moment you are well and truly down the rabbit hole and introduced to new weird and wonderful characters.
The use of varied locations and imaginative set design and blocking means that the scenes never outstay their welcome. The shooting style is understated and effective. The audience is never told or shown something they already know, which is a testament to the skill of the Director.
It's certainly not for everyone, but if you like creepy supernatural thrillers or fantasy horrors like I do, definitely check this one out.
I look forward to seeing what this team come up with in the future.
