More of a metaphor than a horror film
29 June 2020 | by jfost75See all my reviews

This movie may have been billed as Drama/Horror but essentially it's neither. Although the premise of the film is a girl battling thru the end of the world in which monsters have come thru from another dimension, its really just all a bunch of metaphorical hooey that the writer/director was using to express his personal grief issues. Thus the only person who truly understands this movie is its creator, the rest of us can only take our best guess as to what it all means. My interpretation is that the star represents the director, coping with some marital and grief issues and the monsters are the occasional terror and anxiety they felt in their isolation. The premise of some magical sound hidden in the various mixtapes feels like a thin veil put on the film so it could be categorized. If you want a monster horror flic, this isnt for you but if you have a personal relationship with grief, loss, or regret, then you may find some understanding in the film, but dont look for any big answers.
