I'm gonna be honest by saying that the subtitles for this film were difficult to understand. However, I watched it anyway, making my own conclusions as to what was going on and I liked it anyway.
I think the film was well made. The costuming and details, while not overly dramatic, were also well suited. From my translation of the film there is an interesting story going on here. I really hope to find better subtitles eventually.
If you enjoy period horror, you may very well like this. I'd tell you to check it out. As I mentioned, the English subtitles I found were awful but if you soldier through or have decent subtitles you'll be glad you checked it out. I'm about to check out the second film after I finish this review. Maybe that will tell you something. I'm curios as to what is going to happen next.
