Just okay, for the most part. I didn't find anything creepy about it. I would barely consider this horror. It has this monotone nature about it that could more easily put one to rest than evoke fear. There's a few interesting visual tricks. My favorite involves the shadow of a man moving freely and then becoming in sync with his movements, all done in one live take.

Using a combination of creative film trickery and some atmospheric production design, Dreyer crafts a horror film that, despite its obvious age, is still unsettling and scary. The harsh black and white photography, the angular set design, and some creepy acting performances (how weird and dark is that dream sequence?) give this film a punch.

This piqued my interest, and this film found itself near the top of my watchlist. But I was still wary to watch this film. I heard about the strange, grainy video, the washed out dialogue, how this film was as surreal as surreal gets, and then some. But two nights ago, I decided that it was finally time to watch this film.

My initial reaction was the same reaction I had when I watched ERASERHEAD for the first time: "I have no idea what's happening, but I think I like it." The plot is paper thin as we follow our protagonist, Allan Grey, as he uncovers the secrets of a small...
