It's own Genre, like nothing I've ever seen before.
21 April 2015 | by misterphilipjSee all my reviews

This film deserves an 11. I wish I didn't rate any of my other movies as a 10 because this deserves a score above all others.

It's so original, like nothing I've ever experienced before. It's like an adult themed fairy tale, a cross between Bridge to Terabithia and Martyrs. The symbolism and themes throughout spark deep reflection and thought. There are some rather disturbing scenes but they are so creative, so artistic.

See this and you will not be underwhelmed. Just keep an open mind or you will be completely freaked out and might want to stop watching, don't press that pause or stop button and you won't regret it.
