There are big ideas nibbling around the edges of the screenplay, but the movie seems underwhelmed by its own startling material.

O curioso roteiro passa perto de algumas boas questões filosóficas, abandonando-as por aparente falta de ambição. Ainda assim, prende a atenção até o fim; não com suspense, mas com seus personagens.

The plot's surprises aren't the focus, though they do exist; it's the overall story and its implications that Chidel wants us to consider.

Slow burning but very well executed, and a rare example of an intelligent horror movie but the characters are undeveloped. The twist at the end is awesome.
