I'm not sure if I had drank something, popped a pill, or was inhaling carbon monoxide. All I know is that while I was watching this movie, I was literally about to fall asleep. I am not making this up for a joke. I seriously could barely keep my eyes open. That's how bored out of my mind I was.
The story is all over the place. I have no idea what the hell is going on until about halfway, and by then I just don't give a single shit anymore. You can only go so far into a story before you start showing who these people are and what their goals are. Waiting until halfway in or the last act is never a good idea.
The positives I always hear about this is the design. Sure, the sets and characters do have an interesting look. However, I certainly don't think it is mind blowing or amazing. Decent enough for me to throw a whole star at this review, but that's about it.
Oh, and there is totally some creepy interaction between Ron Perlman and the little girl. Like, laying up next to her and stroking her hair. Really, really creepy.
Surreal, disquieting and funny, by turns. This film is a strange and wonderful thing, with it's cast of grotesque characters and amazing visual style. I'm not promising you'll like it, but you should definitely see it.
