Tomaz, a former soldier, is left homeless after an accident and takes refuge in the decaying home of Magda, a lonely young woman in desperate need of help as she cares for her ailing mother. At first hesitant, Magda soon welcomes Tomaz into their lives. But as he gets closer to and begins to fall for Magda, Tomaz notices strange and unexplainable phenomena. Something seems very wrong with the mysterious old woman who never leaves the top floor, and Tomaz begins to suspect that Magda may in fact be a prisoner to her mother’s otherworldly bidding.
“It's an impressive first feature, and while fans of zippy midnight movies might balk at its slow-burn opening act, the film eventually builds to some nutso body horror and a strong sense of mythology that announces Garai's arrival as a filmmaker to watch.” —Kate Erbland, IndieWire “Unafraid to turn into a true phantasmagoria, Garai's filmmaking hints at a director whose tastes skew away from your typical horror movie construction.” —Brian Tallerico, rogerebert.com “Smart and stylish, with fun detours into lurid excess.” —David Rooney, Hollywood Reporter
