I only watched this film for Emma Caulfield, who was one of the better actresses in "Buffy: The Vampire Slayer" at the time so I thought it would be fun to see her in a different role. Well it was anything else than fun. Boring stuff with a lot of running in dark corridors. Emma is terrible and has a role that lacks warmth, humor or even sex appeal. The monster looks stupid and scare only kids under 13.
The opening credits could be a nice short film - sepia photographs burn and bubble, the analog physicality of film disintegrates into darkness, leaving behind floating amber ashes, the lingering spirit of dead myths. Likewise, this film feels somewhat like a dead myth, recognizing itself as such (through narrative parallels to a diagetic storybook) without wearing its self-awareness on its sleeve. (cont.)
I watched this in my cousin's house in a small family village, the lights were off. When the film ended, I had to go back home alone through the woods with almost no light. I entered my grandmother's house and went straight to bed. I looked at the mirror in the left part of the bedroom and I remember seeing a shape or something black, maybe I was dreaming or imagination, but this unknown film really did a trick on me
