i wasn't sure what to expect from the trailer. the film has mostly negative reviews and a 3.7/10 rating on IMDb, but any film that appears to feature gay witches is one i have to check out for myself, and this one was a very pleasant surprise
written, directed and scored by Brady Hall of Hello, My Name Is Dick Licker, which i haven't heard of but sounds interesting. it's a slow-moving, atmosphere-and-character-driven art film that takes a while to get into before picking up pace about halfway through. the story is interesting but doesn't really come together to form a clear picture until the end, which i don't want to spoil
shot in a wooded area near the sea in Washington state, i believe, the location could be a lovely spot to vacation but, through a desaturated filter and accompanied by the film's droning ritual ambient score, feels more dreary and intimidating. the acting is competent, with outstanding performances from Persephone Apostolou and Macall Gordon as the strong female leads, neither of whom i've heard of before before, but i'll definitely keep an eye on them in the future, as well as on Brady Hall
having not read any other reviews of this film as of yet, i can't imagine why it was so poorly received. it's a relatively short and solid ride at an hour and 15 minutes long, where a lesser director might have added 15 minutes of superfluous dialogue or lingered on a few scenes longer than necessary, recommended for fans of budget art horror or anyone curious to see what the horror genre has to offer beyond Hollywood
