A good trip to dystopian retardland
3 June 2014 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Very creepy (The heads lol). This animation looks good (weird) according to its content. Sick movie plot. The darkness helps the creepiness in it.

The movie is slow paced, you have to wait for a while to figure out what's going on & then BOO!! you got it!

Story lacks some key points otherwise it could have been better. One thing I felt that movie like this creepy needed a lot more creepy background tensing music effect.

Few people can find it boring & dull /lifeless because it's nearly made that way. But I say it's good & has a different taste.
