Um.... What?
6 August 2018 | by foutainoflifeSee all my reviews

Is anyone else confused?

Let's start with how well this film has been shot. The locations chosen as the backdrop for this story were awesome. The beautiful waterfall, surrounded by a grim forest and a dilapidated house are visually perfect for a horror film. This setting is probably what I liked most about it. It had a fair amount of suspense and a small amount of blood but I really can't agree that this falls into the horror genre.

I watched this because I found it on a list of the best foreign horror films so my expectations may have been set a bit high but I was disappointed. Without writing a bunch of my thoughts, I'll just say that in my opinion, this movie was all over the place and left too many unanswered questions for me to consider it a top notch flick. It just failed to deliver.
