★★★½ review by street on Letterboxd
Quite a bit goofier than it thinks it is, but goofy's not always a bad thing. Special razzie shout out to the family doctor who shows up to explain why the lead actress has to do another nude scene.
★★★★ review by Joachim Andersson on Letterboxd
A young girl goes home to her mother after her grandmother passes away and tries to unravel a family secret through lucid dreaming. Heavy on the symbolism, this gorgeous looking and sounding movie is quite a rewarding experience. Not everything is clear but who cares when you have a giant horseman waving a spear in a chapel to a great electronic soundtrack?
★★★★½ review by theDia on Letterboxd
Unbelievable. This movie looks like the Italian masters Bava, Fulci and Argento had a lovechild when in their prime. So we get a lot of vivid colors, surreal images, dream sequences and even some disturbing splatter scenes.
But this time around there´s sort of a story to tell and a group of great actors to keep you interested. Especially eighties splatter queen Catriona McColl surprises with a very subtle and "real" performance.
If you have the chance you have to watch it on the biggest screen possible, if not at least do yourself the favor and watch it alone, in the dark and best with a set of good headphones, because the sound design and music (imagine a mix of Jan Michel Jarre and Tangerine Dream) also are impressive.
For me the horrormovie of the year so far (06.21.2015).

A fascinating low-budget Nightmare on Elm Street style indie. The horse mask isn't very good though.
★★★★ review by Mirthbound on Letterboxd
Imagery of mother and daughter making out is supposed to be unsettling? Hahahahaha, it's 2015, bruh.
