In this "psychological horror" film, Coraline's younger sister stares 5 degrees off from the camera lens and blinks in slow-motion for about 2 hours.
The psychological horror is, I suppose, the ever-growing fear that the film might end before it develops a plot.
Spoiler alert: this is exactly what happens.
I have no explanation for a 2-hour long film of people standing mostly motionless and doing absolutely nothing. All of it takes place under fancy colored set lighting, though. It's like a cinematographer's demo reel, but pitched as a horror film.
The girl from Donnie Darko tries her darndest to pull it back together and act out a scene with a plot every now and then, but she never succeeds in getting the other characters to play along.
I don't know, maybe it was a metaphor or something.
