This isn't a film in any conventional sense. For some reason many people because of their lack of sincerity doubt the sincerity of others.
This is pure occultism of the sincerest form. Anger is a known devotee of Aleister Crowley who discussed among other things sacrifice, human and otherwise, demonology, etc.
The film is of a grossly unsettling nature it hints at great horrors while revealing very little. The mind of course can conjure greater horrors than can be shown in film. Certain frames of this stick in your mind like a splinter wondering. The methodic chanting babbling barely audible names is also unsettling and disorienting.
I am not afraid to say this short disturbed me I would prefer I never saw it.
Note: I am not rating this piece a 5, I am offering no rating for it.
