Excellent

I saw this film at the Los Angeles Film Festival, not knowing what to expect, and I was really pleased. The closest comparison I can think of is EVIL DEAD 2. X-Cross hits the perfect blend of horror and comedy. Few films can both deliver the scares and the laughs the way this film does.

I admit, this film won't be for everyone. The plot doesn't really go from A to B. And the visual comedy might be too over-the-top for some viewers. The comedy also has a kind of absurdist edge that could leave some mainstream viewers shaking their heads in confusion. But if absurd comedy suits your tastes you're likely to be very impressed.

The film also just looks beautiful. Set in a mist-shrouded mountain vacation village in rural Japan, this film doesn't have a frame that's not amazing to look at.

Overall one of the best films I've seen in a long time.
