There’s at least one horror movie each year that’s labeled “artwork.” Sometimes the movie has one thing to say, sometimes it’s totally pretty, and typically there’s a very particular conceit the entire premise hangs from.

This tense, apocalyptic thriller about an isolated household evading monsters turns right into a meditation on parenting, living on the margins and beingÂ muzzled byÂ forces higher than your self.
