Several scenes are so repulsive that I won't describe them but if you understand what's really going on (and what's NOT) you realize that the writer/director and actors did an excellent job. Most will not get it or be reviled by about the 20 minute mark (and again later and REALLY again at the end). There are some good explanations online as well as some theories about it not being a linear story.

I admit I was screaming in my head, "NO... NO... NOOOOO!," a few times but the more I thought about it afterwards the more I liked it.

Lots of beautiful scenery that can't hide that there is not really a plot to speak of. The actors did the best they could but don't expect a lot of dialogue. Perhaps there is some symbolism that I missed? Key points that might have made the movie more interesting are glossed over for scenery shots. So many trees.

In much the same vein as Robert Eggers’ "The Witch" and Rainer Sarnet’s "November", Lukas Feigelfeld’s horror film weaves a dark fairytale aesthetic with long tracking shots and minimalist dialogue to tell the story of one young woman’s descent into madness—or damnation depending on which road you take. Sadly, without enough meat for audiences to chew on the entire production begins to sag under the weight of its own audacious sense of style robbing those foreboding pans of mountains and forests (and one pivotal swamp) of much of their impact while threatening to turn more intense scenes into overwrought messes. However, considering this is only Feigelfeld’s graduation film his use of lighting and texture to evoke an emotional response definitely marks him as someone to watch for—you can almost smell the smoke from a roaring hearth, feel the mud between your toes, and taste that horrible final meal.
