Love makes monsters of us all.
In the aftermath of a family tragedy, an aspiring author is torn between love for her childhood friend and the temptation of a mysterious outsider. Trying to escape the ghosts of her past, she is swept away to a house that breathes, bleeds… and remembers.
An outlooked movie from del Toro, better than The Shape of Water. It’s a gothic tale with strong lead performances and gorgeous cinematography. The movie is more like art rather than a story, but has an intelligent social theme in a second plan.
