COMMUNITY REVIEWS

Excellent preriod drama with a touch of horror submitted by ferielp on June 22, 2018, 11:17am The see-sawing dynamics between the soldier (who goes from wounded victim to manimulative lothario to even more wounded victim to aggressor) and the women (who go from powerful to helpless to powerful again) was masterfully directed.

Okay submitted by zmclaugh on August 2, 2018, 6:07pm Some interesting moments, but also some hard to believe plot points.

Unexpected and suspenseful submitted by lstorc on August 27, 2018, 12:04pm The story was fairly horrific. The costumes and set design were beautiful. There's definitely a solid underline suspense throughout.
