      @EJ Moreno it was too long and unreal, when the people started disappearing why didn't they leave? Plus ➕ they drinking and eat food they didn't see prepared

      Mopey girl agrees to travel to a drug-addled village of lunatics with her dopey b/f and looks blankly on as her new friends vanish and ingests more of the Kool-Aid to become crowned queen of the river-dance and give a hearty thumb's down to her crummy cheating b/f who's forced to impregnate a girl while being serenaded in the most ass-clenching fashion. Pun intended.


      That about sums up this turkey. The remaining 135 minutes feature a scene or two designed to snap you awake from your boredom. You've seen worse and better explained.

        I don’t think the cult in this film were Satanist, this seems much older than that

      wait, are you trying to wear overalls as a fashion choice? wtf lol

      • madeline haverty
        madeline haverty  4 months back

        Spaghettini Meataballs literally no one is here for his overalls. they’re here for the review. farmers don’t own overalls. your mentality really shows when you call someone a “douchebag” and compare fashion to “the mentally disabled”. it’s a pair of overalls , get over it.

      • Spaghettini Meataballs
        Spaghettini Meataballs  4 months back

        EJ Moreno it's not about farmers and construction workers complaining. It's about you looking like a disrespectful douchebag and coming off as some kind of ignorant and clueless trendsetter. Just letting you k ow how people watching your video will see you. Or you know, maybe people watch this video and think "oh cool, overalls"

      • EJ Moreno
        EJ Moreno   4 months back

        If farmers are offend by my outfit, they can take it up with me. But I think people living on farms don’t have time to complain about what people are wearing on the Internet 😂

        ​@EJ Moreno the line is growing ever more thin between people who think they are starting a fashion trend, and the mentally disabled. you know overalls are meant for people who work on farms and such. pretty disrespectful to those people who are out all day under the hot sun working in fields to be wearing an overall like its a fashion accessory.

      • EJ Moreno
        EJ Moreno   4 months back

        It’s called fashion...look it up 🤷🏻‍♀️

        Worst movie I have ever seen. Dont waste your time

        • EJ Moreno
          EJ Moreno   4 months back

          @J Smith Wow so odd to hear this movie described as terrible. Guess it's one of those "for the critics and for artsy film fans" and not for the general public. Makes sense

        • J Smith
          J Smith  4 months back

          It was an awful and boring movie. Dragged on forever. Terrible review.

          EJ Moreno   4 months back

          Love seeing how subjective film is. I could’ve used 30 more mins of the sheer madness near the end. But it’s suck you didn’t like it

        • Paul Robinson
          Paul Robinson  4 months back

          Agree--has to be one of the worst movies I've seen. And it went on forever. . . !

        • Josh
          Josh  4 months back

          @EJ Moreno unexplained deaths, unnecessary nudity, cryptic symbolism, wasn't scary at all, use of drugs was misleading, story could have gone so many different ways at earlier points. I"ll give it a 3 out of 10.

        Cant wait to see the film.

              Ahmed Ben zekri To answer your question, no the ending is not ambiguous. You will understand exactly what is going on. I hope this helped.

              The whole movie is quite predictable actually. No twists at all. In fact, the foreshadowing in this movie was so overt they may as well put up a big sign telling you exactly what's gonna happen next.....

            • EJ Moreno
              EJ Moreno   5 months back

              I think it will polarize some people, for sure!

            • Ahmed Ben zekri
              Ahmed Ben zekri  5 months back

              Do you think the ending will be divisive as to what kind of ending it is ? a twist ending or not

            • EJ Moreno
              EJ Moreno   5 months back

              Ahmed Ben zekri I don’t think the ending is a twist. It was telegraphed from the start of the film

                Awww, poor guy, do we have to trot out the molestation doll so you can show us where the bad movie touched you? I'm kidding, but I also have never head you say..." I want to SHOW YOU what that movie did to ME!" after all I know you watched":A Serbian Movie', film, movie, whatever....

                  Hahaha! I've seen some messed up movies in my time. Multiple viewings of Salo and Serbian Film, but something about this one stuck with me. I never saw those on a big screen and seeing all this wild stuff project so largely feels so naughty. Love having messed up movies again

                  Thanks for this early review. I've had high hopes for this since the announcement, so cool to see the good reviews dropping in. Regarding the "what was the point of it all": here's my five cents based on the script (spoilers ahead!!!!!).


                  HUGE SPOILERS AHEAD SO DON'T READ IF YOU WANNA GO IN BLIND (LIKE YOU SHOULD)


                  The entire Sweden things seems to be some sort of dramatisation of Dani's hopes and desires given her current predicament.


                  She has lost her familiy => she finds a new one in the cult. Her boyfriend treats her less than perfect => he gets what he "deserves". She's suffering from existential dread / anxiety and she doesn't fit in with the entourage surrounding Christian => she finds a new world where everyone has a clearly defined role to fill and they are very overt about it - and most importantly they see Dani as the "special one" (how convenient). They even have a firm grip on death and the cycle of life although it's an "alternative take" haha. She finds no real empathy among her friends => She now has a crew of women who literally cry when she cries - explicitly feels everything she feels. Also I've seen a review stating that there's a poster in her room with a girl talking to a bear. If they are referring to her room in the US then that's one hell of a coincidence given how things turn out. Not pulling the "its all a dream" card, but if that's true then there's a very clear indication that the villa/community is linked to Dani's head-space.


                  Symbolism also seems to be abundant in the film. Christian wearing a bears skin seems to mirror that he may look like a man on the outside, but it's only skin deep (a bear symbolises courage etc. ... everything christian is not). In the script there's a scene where a chicken picks at someones liver as a punishment for stealing the "holy book". That's a reference the the legend of Prometheus who stole from the gods (dunno if it's in the film). And so forth..


                  Anyway, a bit guess work but my best guess.

                    @arnemyggen No no I love it!! But just glad you bumped up the spoiler warning. You had too many juicy bits to delete :)

                    Bitchhhhhh, you better break down this movie. So many spoilers but I really liked your point of view on it. I forgot the script leaked early and it seems to be the exact film.

                  TY for the review & it does sound like my kind of weird. However, as it's *really* difficult for me to get out I think I'll wait till l it's on Netflix, Amazon Prime, etc

                  This is EXACTLY the state that I expected you to be in after watching this movie! I'm excited about seeing something completely new, not part of another story line or universe! I love a movie that allows for "input" from the viewer (how you interpret it affects how you process it afterwards!)! I'm really looking forward to this movie! Excellent movie review--tells me everything I need to know!

                  Fun fact: if you dont experience the light/dark cycle of the day at all, you develop "hospital dementia"....meaning you become disoriented (most common in hospital inpatients due to constant artifical light and not being allowed to sleep). The confusion is serious and has a sudden onset. ive had it once after being hospitalized and it would add to the confusion they characters experience while on or off drugs--and if i remember the preveiw correctly the area they go to never gets dark. It resolves as quickly as it shows up. Just an interesting fact that adds to the concept u mentioned about unreliable narrator.

                    Sure Maggie. Meanwhile I spent 29 years of my life working seven-day rotating shifts and all-Nights before switching to all Days for family health reasons (taking care of a cancer-stricken parent and in/out of hospitals for over a year...real fun) w/o having any sleep disturbances or mental issues despite a shit-ton of OT more often than not.


                    Say uh did you NOT see the part where they shaded the curtains before sleepy time? Personally I enjoyed sleeping during the daylight hours after getting things done following a Midnight shift. It was warmer and more tranquil w/ the noisy neighbors all out and stuck in their miserable cubicles or wherever.


                    I never fooled w/ making things lighter or darker. Seven days on and two off and going from day to night to night to day and early morning and 16 hours and never seeing the Sun or darkness at certain times of year. Yet here I am all present and correct. No drugs or stimulants needed. Maybe I'm secretly in a hospital and demented who knows?
