Art turned into film that only thinkers will understand
This film was art. This film is for thinkers. This film was such a magnificent statement about the psychological damage child abuse can do to a person. I loved that this drama was beautifully disguised as a horror film. In the beginning i love that i could not tell when the old best friend showed up whether or not she was really there. I was torn between thinking this was a supernatural film or a home invasion type film.
I'll explain it for those who didn't understand. My interpretation is that returning to her childhood home made the horrible memories of being molested resurface. The soldier type "bad guy" she sees is like the memory chasing her. Later she imagines herself as this villain when she attacks her father and uncle. The childhood friend of hers is typical for abused children. They often develop schizophrenia or split personalities as a way to cope.
When she's running through the house later and she sees the child in the bloody water with bottles it says to me her father was often drunk when he molested her and he took her virginity. If you notice earlier in the film when the father was taking pictures of the mold in the house she gets a look on her face. Her subconscious is starting to recall the memories of when he took photos of her. The same photos the father and uncle keep hiding from her.
This film was absolutely brilliant. Those who simply expected a horror film were disappointed I'm sure. Much like with M. Knight's The Village there was depth and range and something different. I appreciated this film in all it's glory. Shot for horror fans but the only thing she's running from in this horror film is her own memories and sometimes that can be scarier than any villain. A masterpiece even in all its flaws. Unique and something truly original.
