Masterpiece of Past Cinematic Style
2 February 2020 | by philiphurrellSee all my reviews

In every way this was a hugely surprising and unassuming piece of simplistic cinema with a massive nod to the film noirs of old and Hammer Horror of the past. This is meant with the greatest of respect, as most often simple is best (think KISS) and past ways of cinematography is often over looked as tired and 'old fashioned'. Not so at all in my opinion. Masterpiece is masterpiece, no matter from which era. The frames, the scores, the diologue, even the audio all worked together in perfect harmony. Lots of uncomfortable close-ups and lingering shots that give this film not just an historical feeling of being transported back in time to the 1600's but also to the 1960's days of Hammer Horror and historic cinema classics.
