Ambitious, but yet not enough
13 October 2013 | by Red_IdentitySee all my reviews

After reading just a few quick things on this and how it was similar to both The Shining and Eraserhead (two of my favorite horror films ever), I was quite excited for this. It looked like an indie experimental horror film that I would love. Sadly, while I think there are some very interesting things in here, or things that could be interesting, it never really amounted to much. Not enough horror, not enough intrigue. I think the acting was solid and the story decent enough, I just wish it had gone to further places, done more stuff with the concept. It's not bad and it's sort of really memorable, but I can't really say I liked it overall. Really mixed on it.
