At the 11.28-minute time mark: Elisabeth is attacked by wolves and it's daytime, the sun is up (it might be around midday). To get away from them, she takes shelter in her cabin and shoots them through the door. Immediately she peeps through the hole in the door caused by the bullet and it's clearly dusk. See more »

This is a psychological horror film about a woman homesteading in the late 1800's. It's a lot of work, isolation and tragedies, with no one to turn to. The horror is found in the sanity one can sustain in these conditions.

This wasn't awful but it moves really slow. I think that it did a decent job building the suspense to match the pace. The main actress did a decent enough job in her roll but it isn't something that is going to blow you away.

One of the best things about this was the ominous atmosphere. In my opinion, it was a character all it's own. The story is kinda vague but it is meant to be taken at face value and really tries to pull you into what is going on in that moment. Don't get me wrong. The entire film is guided by flashbacks they just don't have a lot of depth.

There isn't a lot of blood, guts and gore. It is very much a movie filled with paranoia and the disconnecting of reality. I probably won't watch it again but It was an ok flick.
