As with The Devils and Hagazussa, what this folk horror tale lacks in a solid narrative, it makes up for in an insane film that's bursting at the seams with blood, screams, and violence. It is a film that assaults all the senses in various ways.
One of the most notable things about this movie is the way in which the production design, costume design, and cinematography combine to create something not so much unique, but nonetheless very special. This film's cold temperature and blue-ish tone enhance its grim themes and overall atmosphere. Each performance succeeds in adding to the tension and sense of complete despair and madness.
All in all, this is one of those films that won't appeal to everyone, but those who do choose to watch will be in for a wild ride.
