#52LGBTQFilms 2018 pt. 3.
The most frustrating kind of film for me is the kind that clearly wants to say something, but doesn't seem know what it wants to say. I wish I could have enjoyed it just as a horror-thriller, without reading for politics. It has some rather unnerving violence, a harrowing concept, and interesting folkloric parallels. But the film so obviously wants to be a political film that it was impossible not to engage it on that level. And on that level, all I got was confused.
