  1. Bfin Says:

    Absolutely great, and chilling!

    de Gruyter and Thys examine the abyss, and unflinchingly dive into it.

    The timing, the pregnant pauses, all add to the dread. Everything is pitch perfect, from the design of the mannequins, to the position of the mannequins, to the hyper-banal dialogue.
