A bleak atmospheric fable where men are the real monsters.
16 September 2018 | by jonesloloSee all my reviews

This is one of the scariest films I've seen in recent years despite not being a Horror. Its a slow burn, more erie and tensional to begin with. But this builds into a shocking climax as the film goes on that is genuinely terrifying.

The performances are heartbreaking especially the young lead. Without her lighting up the screen it could all get a bit too bleak. The film really rests on her. She is one to watch for the future.

Its great to see more films that focus on women as the lead characters, and although its a difficult watch in places I like the fact that this is not about supernatural evils, or a supposed Witch. Men are the real monsters here.
