    Horrible. Waste of time watching this
  • Rating: 3 out of 5 stars
    I wish I could leave ratings for the ambition of a filmmaker because then I'd give this five stars. Unfortunately, this movie is so damn boring that I could barely find the spirit to watch through the end. It's a crying shame, too, because it has so much to admire and, honestly, even marvel at. The atmosphere is so thick, you'd think writer-director Kyle Edward Ball went to the atmosphere store and bought a jumbo sized bucket of atmosphere and just poured it onto the screen. But no, actually. He carefully crafted that atmosphere. He used a fine brush. It's inspiring, the things he does to set that stage and command the viewer. He has an intriguing way of storytelling. For all it's worth, the movie really makes you feel like a small child wandering their home in the middle of the night, scared out of their mind and not knowing what's real. Kyle Edward Ball achieves that and then some. But for the love of god, this feels like the longest movie of all time. You should make your decision on continuing to watch or skipping the movie entirely about 10-15 minutes in. When you ask yourself "Is the whole movie going to be like this?" I want you to know the answer is yes. The WHOLE movie IS going to be like that. I'm not saying that it's a bad thing, I'm saying you should decide if that's something you want. It's an incredibly smart movie and it can be very rewarding to dig into and piece together and soak in the atmosphere and lose yourself in the premise, but it takes a lot of work from the audience and really tests your patience. I understand the philosophy of less is more, but sometimes more can also be more.

    Can be incredibly creepy at times, but the disjointed nature, the lack of any real narrative, and the way it's filmed (long stretches of the camera panning over empty hallways and objects) result in an unsatisfying experience. I was begging for it to end long before it finally did.

    Definitely interesting. Left you wanting to see more. I think that was the point.

    An absolute terrifying movie that captivates the watcher through the atmospheric horror, not seeing much elevates the creepiness… like when you were a child at night looking at the corner of your room for monsters…

    Not much to look at, very slow paced and weird. Not enough material to determine if it even should be considered a “Horror movie” ..overall the movie just made me anxious. I’m very disappointed that I spent money on this tbh.

    The film excels at intrigue but lacks any sort of depth and I often found myself dosing off rather than being on the edge of my seat.

    More experimental mood piece than horror. Ten people could watch this and come up with ten different narratives as to what they think the story was. Worth a watch if you are into moody, ambient art that defies easy categorization.

    Artistic. Unique. I felt like I was behind the eyes of a child. The frightful things I remembered as a child were there too. It nails the nostalgic "creepiness" of our childhood. However; the first 30 minutes had nearly put me to sleep… and sadly, I should have let it.

    This film is a cinematographic masterpiece, perfectly encapsulating childhood nightmare consciousness.
