THIS FILM NEEDS TO BE REDISCOVERED!
18 August 2018 | by raptandySee all my reviews

This is a great film if you're a fan of weird European cinema. it's about a chick who goes for a walk to a park where she undergoes some kind of mystical transformation and turns into a mythical being. All sorts of weird stuff happen. First, she encounters a group of pagan hippies playing flutes, then this guy whose supposed to be the god Pan shows up and bangs her and after that the chick goes completely bonkers. All the kids that happen to be at that park fall under a mysterious spell and join her. If you're into Robert Grave's White Goddess and Frazer's Golden Bough, there's a lot here to appreciate. The main heroine along with her kiddie followers set free all the animals and kill a guard. Later on she kills a kid. Highly atmospheric, this is a treat if you're a fan of films like Picnic At Hanging Rock and Antichrist. Not much in the gore department though. If you want to see this film, it can be found on Youtube.
