Even tough, there are a few things that you can point your finger at in this movie. Such as the acting and it's nonsensical story(Which I acturlly think, was kind of the point) This is one of those movies, that just has an odd quality to it. For my money, this was one the most unique movies within the horror-genre I have seen for quite some time.
The film has a very dreamy and surrreal look to it, that is captured by beautiful cinematography and decent special effects, also not to mention the haunting atmosphere, which is an absolute delight.
It will not be a movie for everybodys tastes, but if you're a horror-movie fan, I highly recommend that you check it out, or if you're a person, that is just looking for a unique surreal experience.
Severly cut down from 3 hours of footage serves the movie well as the disjointed and disrupted flow in the editing and narrative contributes to an eerie, mysterious atmosphere reminiscent of the later Italian horror flicks of the 80s. A lot of creative special effects and inspired camera work keep things interesting despite the low budget, questionable acting and nonsense plot developments. Recommended for horror buffs.
Fun to watch, will definitely check out the rest of the series.
