If art were Horror
19 November 2018 | by schlagzeugplayerSee all my reviews

This is a strange combination of true creepiness and stunning visuals albeit very dark. It's a Russian movie so it's in subtitles, which is good because unless 1000% would be put in setting this to English, it would not be as effective. So a town has a infection killing its folk and two girls want to stop it with the help of a Priest. That's the barebones of it, but the visuals are so magnificent in a perfect darkness like way . So indulge in this film strange and haunting in a artistic vein.
