Beautiful and unsettling
21 March 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Some of the reviews are wildly different from the reactions on the Facebook page. I'm not sure why some of the people were expecting horror, it doesn't seem to be billed as such. At any rate, I found it very captivating and pretty unsettling at times. My girlfriend thought it was less scary but romantic. We both loved it and thought it was cool we reacted to it in very different ways. It is unlike anything either of us have ever seen, which was a plus for us. The acting was top notch and the score is incredible. It is definitely not the same old thing anyone has seen before. I'm not even sure what you would call it. I've read it is scheduled for some kind of release in the fall. I'd encourage people to check it out.
