About the Movie
Haunted for years by the unexplained death of his four-year-old sister Ayla, Elton's days and nights are inhabited by the presence of a mysterious woman. As his obsession with the woman grows, he becomes convinced she's his sister, returned now as an adult. Resolving to find her at all costs, Elton plunges further down a rabbit hole forged by his own loneliness and desire, but who or what will emerge?
I did not find this movie entertaining. I do like watching movies to be entertained. Perhaps this one was way over my tiny brain. Not even scary. The premise does not make sense. A grown man obsessed over loosing a sister when they were both very young. To therapists, the movie may be a great roundtable topic for discussion. There was no take away for me. No laughs. No tears. No smiles. No profound revelation. I take that back. There is regret. I regret having rented this movie. Even then, at least I did not buy it. So I’m good there.
I was intrigued by the trailer on YouTube, but like the reviewer before me, I regret having spent money on this. I don't feel like there was anything about this film other than "uncomfortable" vibes, but that is meaningless when there's no form of resolution. The cinematography was great, the music was hit or miss, the acting was pretty good, but the plot is...lacking severely. It relies WAY too much on sex scenes where story should have been instead. I won't pretend to be a film snob, but there was so much potential that never amounted to anything. I wish I could recommend this, but I think you'd get more out of watching the trailer and speculating about what might be in the film.
Disturbing body horror/ghost story
There’s a lot of unsettling things in this creepy film. Whether it’s the lead actors starved appearance, the blistering body horror he experiences or his odd incestuous relationship with his sister’s supernatural presence. By turns disturbing, upsetting and heartbreaking this is definitely worth checking out if you want something other than a generic jump scare horror movies.
