Loved that this was more of an art house horror film.
20 August 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

What makes this more of an art house film is that the blood letting is limited, it's picturesque and it's story is decidedly different. The notion of cutting open the victim's stomach and filling a cavity with rocks gives it a fairy tale appearance. The killer tells the story which is a very cool twist and does it against a backdrop of fantastic art work.

Vigdis Anholt was such a compelling villainess. Erin is an intimidating and memorable character. She embodies a child-like innocence but yet instills a nagging feeling that something isn't quite right. Certain sights and sounds trigger her inner demons. It really is a feminist movie in its own right.

I was impressed with David Morwick's portrayal of Peter as the lone surviving male. He is a sympathetic character. Like Erin, he's ultimately a bit of a loner. Erin and Peter 's scenes together, have elements of romantic comedy which adds a bit of charm.

The film has a musical sensibility and is creepy but yet angelic. There is striking imagery. White snow was a beautiful contrast with Erin's blood-red cape. As for the music, I love the dramatic power of the choir. Make no mistake, for a little horror film, the music is striking.
