You can escape from everything, except your own self
Darkness is, as many people describe God, beyond our human understanding. Inside your head, there is a grinning, lifeless skull; and the organs and systems inside you, will eventually rot and turn into airborne dust that was once rot and stench. Thus is the mind. it holds together until driven to the edge, and the push usually comes from birth. We are made of life and death, we are creation and decay. The thin line that separates creation from murder is erased before our very eyes during this movie, and we are shown that no monsters, demons or creatures of myth are as maddening as we humans are. We have spawned them, we are the crib. Betrayal from the womb. Betrayal from our peers. Betrayal from within. If you can sit through this film; filled with uncanny moments of beauty, aural and visual pain, you will ask yourself if you have ever heard your name being called from the dark... and you will be thankful for the advancement and solid walls and modernity around you.
