Family trauma reunion with Mummy
I thought this movie started out decently, but fell apart as things started to unfold, by the end leaving you questioning what you just watched.
It almost felt like the writers/ people Involved/ maybe even the actors were confused on what exactly this plot was. It was very successfully atmospheric and kept you engaged until the third act where things kind of went off the rails. It was all… kind of explained, yet still even after I was left asking why. I think the plot/script needed another couple once overs to really iron it out and make sure it made sense and was cohesive. Regardless, I thought the mother and daughter both did a solid job as far as acting goes with this and there was still some solid creep factor.
I felt this one had a lot more potential that it didn’t quite tap into but was not overwhelmingly unsuccessful. Would recommend but not fervently.
Scratches the slow burn folk horror itch
This is a good one to check out with no up-front information. Turns into a mostly folk horror piece mixed with some other genres (body/cult/trauma) and gets the job done to become unsettling, dark, and disturbing at times. Good sound design adds to some effective atmospheric conditions and intensity. It’s not a large, noteworthy cast or anything but the scenes stay focused on the two strong leads, which perform very well and keep attention on them as you would hope- and most effective when together. There are some scenes that feel like they are only thrown in to add running time, unfortunately. Not perfect, but overall, this viewing is worth a look.
