Quotes

Rosalind Leigh: Sometimes, late at night, you can still feel the loneliness, like an animal, in the dark, ready to pounce. It can make a warm memory seem empty and unfamiliar. Past things seem insignificant, and even faith, seem trivial and worthless.

In a world where originality cannot be found in horror...
5 October 2013 | by alex-mr-lySee all my reviews

This, my fellow movie watchers, is where we catch a glimpse of true artistry. Most of us know that the reason that the horror genre gets such terrible ratings most the time is because we've all seen the same crap over and over again. And it gets old after a while. We can thank directors like Alfred Hitchcock for making practically every original thought for horror films. But dare I say it, I should emphasize the "practically." This movie, was awesome. It didn't try to pull every popular string to draw the mainstream audience in (that is addicted to seeing the same trash show up over and over again and call it "scary") and it didn't seek to simply get views and something to watch once to say you did to all your friends. This film actually requires the audience to work. I know, daunting task right? Almost a horror in itself. But come on, aren't we a little tired of just having most if not all the answers come to us, with very few questions asked? This film shot down the traditional and gave us a little originality, something that is VERY hard to find. Give it a watch and see for yourself. SPOILER ALERT: Yes, the ending is abrupt. Yes, it may leave you wanting more. But isn't that an amazing feeling? Tell me another recent film ESPECIALLY in the horror category that actually left you wanting a sequel? I can't name one. I doubt I could even name one if I gave it some thought, which I won't bother to do because like my belief in God I have faith that the horror movies I've seen lately excluding Rosalind Leigh seriously suck and aren't worth remembering. Trust me, I am hard on movies.

If you like both a film that asks you questions and is deeply metaphorically and religiously compelling, watch this movie.
