The soundtrack was well thought out, well timed, interesting, and overall, very effective. The costuming was also interesting, although at times I felt I was watching folks at Renaissance Fair flashing their coolest gear. The scenery was beautiful and the cinematography seemed well done. The actors and actresses were all extremely attractive.
Sounds like a good flick so far right?...nope. Most of the movie was interesting camera angles and filters following attractive folks in nice costumes running around a beautiful snowy alpine forest to an evocative sound track. There was absolutely no character or plot development, really lame and very sparse dialog (this may have been a blessing considering the weak acting), and two separate insipid plotletts running in tandem that had very little do with each other, even in the vapid ending of this slow paced, shallow film.
The story's premise had a spark of imagination but it failed to catch fire and quickly cooled to a dull cinder with a bland script that didn't do anything with it other than just re-state it...the story didn't go anywhere or change any of the characters. At least in the onslaught of several non-sequitur monster minions, there was a Donnie Darko bunny monster clone and something vaguely reminiscent of toothy version of Zappa's Thing Fish.
Probably the best thing to do with this movie is not to bother watching it, or just let run in the background with the sound turned down while you read a book. Be forewarned, there is no story here.
