Ulrich Seidl Film
I saw the trailer for this movie and I really looked forward to watching it. All the actors are very good, especially the little twin boys. It's easy to see the "twist" early in the movie. I kept anticipating a shift in momentum that would take the movie in another direction. That never happened. This was so disappointing. Too bad. I really enjoyed this movie at the beginning and I was so sorry it never achieved the goal it should have reached.
If you are looking for a good horror movie, the first 40 minutes fits the bill. Sadly, the experience of watching this film will probably let you down.
