It would be disingenuous of me to call this film's premise completely original. It recalls to mind many a few other horror films out there. However, what is most important is just how unique a film can execute familiar premises, and this film does that and more. To begin with, it's an incredibly well written coming of age/sexual awakening/horror/black comedy film. More than anything, it is an amazing directorial achievement. To learn that it is the debut feature of the director is that much more impressive, and luckily it's also a film that isn't afraid to linger in the female gaze. We need more female filmmakers like this and this is such a breath of fresh air.
