While they are trying to locate a missing friend two friends stumble upon a an opera that was supposedly written in blood and will bring about the end of the world if performed.
Mannered horror fantasy is going to work for some people and not for others. Put me in the second group because the films tone never worked for me. While there is something to the story of the lost friend and potentially demonic work the film seems more interested in things other than generating suspense and terror. I kept waiting for it generate something so that it would finally connect to me but it never did.
Its a miss with a plot line that I’d like to see redone by a different director.This film screened as part of Fantaspoa 2022. For more information on the festival, please visit www.fantaspoa.com.
