Well that was weird. I was pretty unsettled in my theatre seat several times in this film. People talk about the rabbit in this movie but that early scene with a baby is going to stay with me for quite some time. Not well I am.
Visually, this is a really well-shot movie. I was very much in each sequence and I felt cold as they felt cold. The performances are pretty strong as well. I think The Village would have been far better had we had some of these actors in it. That boy especially.
It's a hard movie to recommend since I think most people wouldn't enjoy it or even get it. It's not an easy path this movie is asking you to follow. One thing that this movie deserves a vast amount of credit for is that it's original and feels fresh. You won't be able to anticipate much since this is a formula we haven't seen before.
Again, I'm not well after seeing this. Well done.
