Bland and utterly unappealing non-horror
10 November 2018 | by kannibalcorpsegrinderSee all my reviews

Living with her commune members, a young woman who is continually plagued by strange and disturbing dreams about a prophetic visitor that disrupts the community finds those dreams coming true and tries to prevent the other cult-members from devolving into madness.

This was a fine if somewhat problematic effort. Most of the enjoyable aspects here is the film's approach to the day-to-day lives of the members involved with the cult. Their traditions and general way of life, living in a seemingly underground bunker with elaborate Gothic-lined candles, dressed all in white and featuring plenty of overt religious iconography from the idea of the one figure controlling them in a position of power and influence all gives off a rather intriguing affair. Even the idea of wearing expressionless masks and being driven around in marked cars when leaving the compound offer up that kind of interesting dynamic with the cult and its regulations. Alongside the nice gore shots included here for the few kills, there's not much else for this one as it does have a few major problems. The biggest issue with the film is the fact that it's just deathly dull and boring. It's nearly impossible to care at all about the exploits of the cult and its members when it's so dragged out and completely unwilling to go for any kind of faster pacing to simply speed this along further, resulting in over-long sequences that are so bland and uninteresting that the film feels far longer than it's already rather long running time. Seeing how long it takes to get through their routines, traditions and preparations doesn't really offer up much of anything interesting, and by doing this ends up pushing the horror out of this one to the point that the fact it's about a cult is really the only piece of genre involvement throughout here. The film never maintains even the slightest hint of genre hallmarks due to this and is really weak as a whole in the first place by going for the religious banter as much as it does without actually showcasing any purpose or point instead, which really manages to undermine this one and holds it back the most.

Rated Unrated/R: Graphic Language, Graphic Violence, Brief Nudity and a clothed sex scene.
