One strange movie coming up
19 September 2012 | by See all my reviews

It is a really tough movie to describe. I'm not going to use spoilers, though even if I did it'd be very difficult to catch the essence of it. It is a very spiritual movie. Of course it might feel fake for some, quite a few may see where this is heading (at least a general direction), but it's still a ride worth taking.

If you like low budget cinema/drama (with a touch of horror) that is. The acting is really good (the kid is supposed to be annoying and especially unnerving) and the story has this vibe to it that strangely attracted me to it. It's not perfect by all means, but I do think the fact that it tries to be different and especially "feel" different, sets it apart from some other movies (in a good way).
