Critical Review

The following review is taken from the iMDB link in the external links below

  • Moody horror thriller ala The Wicker Man
  • 15 December 2002
  • Author: Ted Newsom

Stylish if deliberate tale of Steven, a young man sent away from an Amish-like farm community for his own safety. Ten years later as an adult, he returns to find his "old girlfriend" Gaika still physically and sexually stuck in adolescence. His current flame is none too happy about this moony-eyed "teenager" claiming Steven as her own. A series of weird deaths by what appears to be a muck-covered succubus don't seem to bother the locals, who are more intent on the upcoming fertility ritual.

Fuchs intelligently evokes an otherworldly atmosphere of rural creepiness, much the same sort of milieu as CHILDREN OF THE CORN or THE OTHER. Music and photography are excellent. Some modest (although hardly gratuitous) nudity and a good-looking monster. Some of the performances don't quite reach the level of the leads, but overall this is a thoughtful and creepy film.
