I do not recommend you see this movie if you are not a fan of Andrei Tarkovsky and Stanley Kubrick, or are only into gore and action flicks. I recommend you see this film if you like imaginative camera work, intricate sound design and evocative, memorable music.
The performances by the three leads may at first seem awkward, but paying close attention to the dialogue and interations between the three women will reveal the many layers that comprise their characters.
Kudos to David Kristian for providing a soundtrack reminiscent of the best John Carpenter or Tangerine Dream scores from the late 70s-early 80s, and for adding sound design so deep and disturbing that it might as well have been credited as a fourth lead character.
Hussain's compositions and lighting are also noteworthy, as he eschews the usual darkness and blue hues to instead bathe his characters and locations in pale natural light that becomes even more disturbing.
I was a little confused by the film's ending, but this is the kind of film you should own and have playing in the background as an atmosphere piece, slowly soaking it in over several years until you get every bit of its clever subtext.
