“...aided by Anne Nikitin's classy score– The Guardian

a cosmic score…” – Indiewire

sharply edited and wonderfully scored (the film itself is a masterclass in both)– Twitch Film

The clever use of blurred visuals and bursts of screen static add to the creepy feel of this unrelenting mind-bender, as does Anne Nikitin’s insistently ominous score.“
