Early 18th century. Cartographer Jonathan Green undertakes a scientific voyage from Europe to the East. Having passed through Transylvania and crossed the Carpathian Mountains, he finds himself in a small village lost in impassible woods. Nothing but chance and heavy fog could bring him to this cursed place. People who live here do not resemble any other people which the traveler saw before that. The villagers, having dug a deep moat to fend themselves from the rest of the world, share a naive belief that they could save themselves from evil, failing to understand that evil has made its nest in their souls and is waiting for an opportunity to gush out upon the world.

The movie is filled with symbols you can read them well if you pay close attention, also the movie is charged with morale stories. Sometimes it is required your full attention in order to extract the idea.
The only drawback is that sometimes the story doesn't connect very well like the scene with the ogres, something that maybe want's to be surreal or an influence from the evil forces, a dream state that has the opposite effect on our protagonist. The movie has an original look that is one step away from the Hollywood typology. The effects look well with minor observations, the movie want's to be a horror movie but it isn't, it's a dark fantasy with religious themes. It s worth to mention that the budget was only 26 million and the results are spectacular for this amount.
