Two wanted women decide to rob their wealthy psychotic friend who lives in the fantasy world they created as children; to take the money they have to take part in a deadly perverse game of make believe.
The dark legend of the young woman Albrun and her struggle to preserve her own sanity, and tries to explore the fine line between ancient magic, faith and madness at a time when pagan beliefs in witches and nature spirits spread fear and terror in the minds of the rural population.Written by
It's been said in other reviews, but you can definitely compare this film to The VVitch. In fact, this movie feels like something of a spiritual prequel or companion piece to that film.
The score is incredible and really drives home the dark, brooding atmosphere. It's heavy and kind of gets in your head.
I would probably rate this film a 9, but gave it ten to help balance out the one star review by someone with no attention span or conception of how rating something works.
I'd recommend this movie to anyone who enjoys slow, brooding horror. If you enjoy films like The VVitch or The Blackcoat's Daughter, do yourself a favor and check this gem out. You won't regret it.
