“The story and performances evolve in scenery that is just stunning, beautiful, and filled with grey sadness that fits the film perfectly.”
   Cinema Crazed

“It trades traditional scares and a focus on creature design for slow-burn chills, a moody framework, and measured ambiguity.”
Bloody Disgusting

“Its crisp cinematography, choice of landscape and gripping performances make it one of Outfest’s most inviting entries this year and a memorable addition to the cultural definitions of horror film.”
Alexander Ryll, Gay Essential
