Will a horror film lover enjoy A Dark Song?
The film is relatively slow paced; however, it is well worth the wait. The audience is taken on a journey that uses the fact that it is slow paced, as a way to make us understand the struggles of the Mother’s pain. The fact that the ritual (which is done by an alcoholic angry, rude and obnoxious Scottish man) involves not being able to leave the house for a long time, really gives us a sense of desperation in the need for the Mother to see her child again. The character development is incredibly visual, as the audience are able to see the lady becoming more and more frustrated and angry at the Scots man. She gets frustrated to a dangerous level, which really makes the film worth watching! But we can not tell you about that part, because it would be a maaaasive spoiler! This film is truly a masterpiece though. You gotta watch it if you haven’t seen it already!
