    It gave me strong vibes of the videogame Rule of Rose. De a ratos demasiado criptica, con un monton de simbolismo que hay que masticar. Intrigante y perturbadora.

    Fascinating atmospheric horror that feels so ahead of it's time. Ahead of most horror films made in America at the time, very much in the vein euro gothic horror. The closest i could think in terms of mood and framing will be Mario Bava. It's an effective slowburn horror tale that plays tricks with the audience, in a clever way. Never showing any contempt for the viewer. It's one of those few movies that truly feels that it fell from another dimension. Deserves a criterion BR pronto.
