"Wierd, disturbing and unsettling," is a quote from the young, first time director. That sums it up pretty much for me too. Watching the 13 minute interview with the director in the Special Feature does give the viewer his idea of what he was attempting to do with this film.
He does explain that he wanted it shot in black & white, as the main character's world is dark and lonely, which to him provides the better setting.
I do give this film high marks for trying to do something different and although it is disturbing, it does not have a lot of gore, but at the same time I did find it difficult to watch due to unsettling nature of the character and also for some of the discrepancies that my critical eye saw. I also do not think I sympathized with the main character, as much as what the director was hoping for. The editing was jumpy and I was left scratching my head a few times in wondering what was happening.

Bloody Disgusting calls it "One of the best horror movies of the year"...well, usually they are pretty reliable, but I guess they dont get out much anymore. This was a total waste of 76 minutes, thankfully it was that short.
I guess if you enjoy your artsy sit around with your latte and discuss the camera angles and black and white beauty then you may find something to was soooooooo boring it felt like 2 hours, and quite honestly it seemed like a 15 minute short extended.

I gave it one star for the Marketing Team who packaged this to entice me to watch it....They are the real talents behind this dog.

Chilling, disturbing, and fascinatingly executed. We feel dreadfully sad for the main character, existing in nearly complete isolation... until we don't. The movie reveals slowly, bit by bit.
