No Friends? Inconceivable! Log in to see what your friends have to say.
A restrained, ripely atmospheric thriller that relies more on mood than on special effects.
Here, too much handheld camera wobble and wavering image focus only alienate the viewer from this somewhat sluggish tale.
offers a visual restraint and a melancholic lyricism that make it quite unlike anything else in the otherwise overcrowded serial killer genre... a story of love and death, addiction and self-control, the wages of sin and the long road to redemption.
The scrambled timeline seems like an effort to disguise a paucity of original ideas. It'll be interesting to see what Wingard can do when he actually gets hold of some.
As a horror movie that feels more like a mumblecore drama that a serial killer passes through, it's deaf to its own shifting tones.
