- JOHANNES NYHOLM PRODUKTION, BEOFILM
The film avoids gross-out shivers in favor of the quiet torture of expecting death behind every tree.
"Impossible to turn away.. the bastard offspring of A Groundhog Day and The Babadook." "An effective piece of horror that cuts deep"
"A keenly-observed adult fairy tale in which grief, guilt and blame bite harder than any big bad wolf. A poignant exploration of the raw power of grief" "Other-worldly tone and striking artistry"
