Oozes pure menace
11 May 2017 | by jwayimlSee all my reviews

It's a slow burner, but stick with it! You'll be swept along on a wave of anticipation and prickly evil Superb casting melancholic music and demonic lighting create an atmosphere of swirling impending threat. The acting is spot on, and the camera work deserves recognition, it's a great piece of work. Can't wait for the finale!
