Storyline

A warrior travels wild expanses on horseback, pursuing the monster that murdered his daughter. His thirst for revenge is the driving force of a film constructed with very few elements, minimalistic and epic at the same time, where fantasy and horror find their more physical and gory incarnations (synopsis in the 2018 Sitges Filmfestival programme catalogue).

Beautifully filmed and scary
6 April 2019 | by barrashleySee all my reviews

I really liked this movie. Beautifully filmed and great suspense. I can't understand why some people rated this so lowly. Maybe they didn't understand it. Definitely worth a watch.
