I really dug the “logical surrealism” of this film, and I think it’s a natural progression of the genre in the “post-Lynch” era. It does feel a little too long for its short runtime, but the amazing soundtrack really helped me enjoy the scenes that were too self-indulgent.
The blasphemous parts are somewhat difficult to watch as a Christian, but as is the case with most possesssion films, it tends to reinforce a moralist message of, “witchcraft is bad.” I can accept those scenes in that context.
The coolest thing about this movie is that it’s totally “witchhouse music as a film.” I’ve got to listen to Plurabelle for the rest of the night now.
Death Waltz is releasing this soundtrack, and even if you don’t watch the movie, the music is worth checking out.
My problem with the film is that the demon has no goal besides, “possess Luz,” which makes the ending pretty anti-climatic.
