I love "slow build" horror, but this is just slow and no build. I kept hoping for something to even startle me and all that happened was I got more and more bored. I literally (yes literally, not figuratively) fell asleep.

Just... ugh. I know that I went into this film with lofty expectations, as I had often heard it compared to Robert Eggars' "The Witch" (which happens to be my favorite film) in terms of atmosphere, complexity, and presentation/tone. Unfortunately, no dice. The atmosphere of the film is only sometimes effective, and is frequently shattered by unexpectedly goofy shit that was obviously unintentional, such as the strangely bad and clumsy dialogue. One of the film's biggest hindrances is the very poor implementation of its soundtrack; it is used as a huge crutch to establish the atmosphere, which would be fine, but unfortunately the music is simply not good enough to warrant this, and it turns the whole film into a total bore while you wait for something to happen. I love slow burn films, especially slow burn horror films when they're executed well, but it's a very fine line, and this film unfortunately falls on its face in that regard. The performances were alright at least.

I am ashamed having been so patient and a sucker for having seen this thing. It doesnt deserve to be called a movie. I think from now on everything will be better for me, because i have already seen the worst garbage, rubbish that can be. This is a scam. They should compensate us for the waste of time. I have an idea, we, the cheated spectators, could follow a class action against the producer.

You have to really like atmosphere and slow build up where you don't really know what is going on for most of the movie. This movie was great and I could not look away. Definitely one that will make you think and consider a re-watch. It's definitely not for everyone, especially people who need the really in your face kind of horror.

Pace is slow at the beginning with some scenes too long and uneventful. BUT: worth watching for terrific acting and atmosphere, then worth watching again to see how the creepy bits begin to sneak in. More enjoyable if you don't mind questions without answers. A true horror film.
