Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Yes, it's a horror movie (the murder scenes suggest that the director has watched "Psycho" more than once), but even its most brutal acts pulse with inchoate sadness.
Fresh: It's an atmospheric slow-burn that's heavy on moody insinuation and light on overt gotcha scares.
Fresh: Osgood Perkins impresses - and scares - with his chilly debut feature about young women and dark forces.
Rotten: The characters are too underdeveloped to leave an impression.
Easily Becomes A Part Of The Modern Horror Renaissance
This movie is great. It's very slow, and if the story doesn't sound intriguing or interesting, you probably will not like this movie. It leaves much unexplained which forces the viewer to think about what is being put on screen and what it means. There are a few issues with the film that cannot be discussed without spoilers, so I won't get into them, but these issues hinder it from getting a 5/5. Definitely check this out if you were a fan of the recent horror films such as "It Follows" or "The Witch." This is being added to the list of modern horror taking its place back to where it started and abandoning cheap jump scares or torture porn.
This movie is one of the best movies I've seen in all my years, the storyline of the movie was perfection and the setting was great as well. I just wish they made more movies similar to this one, but unfortunately they do not.
Great performances, tone and atmosphere. Beautifully shot.
