So difficult to watch. It was superbly well done, which is why I rated it so highly and marked it as "like" but I hated every minute of it.
Carl Theodor Dreyser directed this super creepy near-silent film about a young supernatural enthusiast who finds himself face to face with dark forces at a remote inn. The film has a very sparse plot, but is teeming with stark and disturbing imagery. This is definitely a must-see for cinephiles (I was late to the party) and lovers of German Expressionism.
I was able to catch this one before the death of Filmstruck and I'm so happy I did. Melanie Mayron is completely engaging and I loved this sweet and slightly off-kilter story. And Christopher Guest was apparently a hottie at some point so yay for that. But seriously, I really loved this film and it's stuff like this that make me so glad that I'm in film nerd groups because I would never have made it a priority to watch without the recommendation of someone who I really trust. (So thanks Matthew Gasteier!)
