Blown expectations!
27 September 2018 | by kraljtvrtkoSee all my reviews

So much hate for a movie that was shot in just 47 days with a budget of 2,000,000 EUR. I say good job. I am glad that I watched this movie. You will also be introduced to the pagan traditions and their 'way of thinking' so to speak.

:)
