A Fantastic Film
9 May 2010 | by creativecarolineSee all my reviews

I loved the movie so much, I watched it a second time. It is soooo beautifully shot, and it really has something for everyone. It's scary, mysterious, thought-provoking, inspiring, unique, and even romantic, but not conventionally. People seem to get into discussions afterwords, and there is nothing worse than a movie you have nothing to say about after seeing.

I have also since met the Director, and he is such a cool, nice, super smart guy. Someone to watch for sure. I will surely be telling everyone to go see it as soon as it hits theaters. A sleeper hit, I suspect.

I also can NOT watch horror movies, I get waaay too scared. This was scary, but I was still somehow able to watch it--maybe because the point of the movie is not to just scare people, it just happens to be really scary (at least to me) in parts. The scary parts had more going on than just "this movie is just supposed to scare the crap out of you" kinda stuff. It has real characters that you care about or are drawn to, complex relationships, and mysteries to uncover. And the way it is shot and the lighting and environment are like old world paintings, but in the present. Gorgeous.
