(es) wrote: The movie is not so bad after all. It's actually not your typical horror movie but the plot is questionable. Most horror films tend to be unrealistic and this is one of them but the story is alright. You got the typical youths not worrying about anything and thinking they're doing some kind of "outing" to feel free about it, when they have no idea that they're in for a nightmare. Even though there were signs along the way that their journey is not gonna go well. I mean, come on. A strange looking gas station is not so suspicious at all, right?Anyways, the part that was really questionable was the climax of the movie. The only thing you know was that there was a needed for sacrifice to please the gods below and that was it. There weren't much explanation as to how they capture and housed so many evil monsters and spirits. They just show you that they imprisoned by some kind of box with glass that prevent them from escaping and what not. Just somehow.You get the occasional jump scares and the typical characters going stupid and everything but other than that, this horror movie somehow separates itself from the others because of its plot, otherwise. A movie that's quite good for watching friends especially.

The young mens' expressions seen on the movie poster, is the same through most of the movie. It is intriguing how the actor's staid faces express different things but the illusion became boring well before the final act. Love-Hate relationships, competition of equals and struggle for independence are compelling themes. This film is lovely exhibition and sparse dialogue which can make great film. Terrence Malick and Gus Van Sant use it well and Marco Berger's wonderful Plan B employs it adeptly.I was unable to make connections from the imagery and nuanced dialogue is missing. Characters and sex are used as plot devices senselessly and abruptly entering then exiting the story. A clever animated opening is employed, yet events through the second act seem disconnected from the intent of the first. Although the film is not about sexuality, it's a plot device. There is an interesting use of alternative sexuality. During that scene, one brother spies the other in a same sex encounter which is the most romantic tryst of the film. The outcome is unclear, is the spying brother jealous, angry, confused? It's not clear. None the less, he's not well about it and the intent of the stunt he pulls is not clear. Is it revenge, punishment, a cruel joke or the stated intention at face value? It's cruel and seems unlikely as does the entire third act of the film until the final scenes. Visually the movie is luscious; scenes are artistically framed and the camera loved the two leads and the countryside used. I don't mind a slow pace as long as the story is propelled forward in a way that interests me. If only this story had clearer intent and nuance in tone. I would say the film is lovely and intriguing, but uninteresting and monotonous. Still there's a lot of talent here.

Yes, it is a bit sappy in bits, but it's a truly original film with some wonderfully memorable performances. For me, it went straight to my heart and there it has stayed for many years. I've seen it many times and it's nice to revisit every now and again, like an old friend.
