Motion Picture Rating (MPAA)
Rated PG-13 for disturbing images/thematic content, and brief drug material
This movie falls into the niche category of horror movies that throw everything out the window (plot, dialogue, acting…) in an effort to be artistic and cerebral. Undoubtedly the cinematography is beautiful, but that’s the only positive. The plot is thin, the acting is okay but theres nothing there, and the overall movie was a bit boring. A definite creep factor, but not scary at all, which was a real let down.
