Perfect cast and a good story
It is so daring, it is so ambitious, it is so thrilling and weird and pointed and powerful. I never knew where it was going.
Through painfully honest and emotional moments, the movie becomes irresistibly relatable
what a terribly boring film. I'm sorry but this is absolutely not deserving of best picture and will be forgotten quickly. Entertaining and engaging cinema? No. Nothing performances with flat faces and mistaking silence for subtlety.
Really enjoyed this movie, saw it at the International Film Festival in New Zealand. Having grown up in Austria, I knew the first fairytale about "Die Trud" and the Bavarian one was also very familiar. The 8 tales moved around the world and were very different, but all beautifully shot. The last, Hungarian one, played like an old silent movie was a bit more farcical but the others held genuine horror and dread.
Cute concept (world folklore anthology); well executed.This was much more subtle than a lot of mainstream horror which I think will subvert some watchers expectations, either positively or negatively.I found the opening short examining the socio-religious stigmas surrounding homosexuality to be artful and insightful with a positive empowering message that wasn't crass or overstated.At least one short examined elder care through the lens of witchcraft. The last short was a delightful dark comedy--Grimm meets Aesop.It was cool to see something new in horror under the guise of being old.
I heard a lot about this from friends, but after seeing it very dissapointed. The whole thing was pretty bad.
Good movie south by southwest, interesting concenpt bringing shorts together. Worked really well
