This film being the feature directorial debut from Sergio G Sánchez, the writer of The Orphanage and The Impossible, was enough to sway our heads towards its extremely limited theatrical release. Also, you got the extremely in-demand right now Anya Taylor-Joy (The Witch), and a talented young cast who all seem on the verge of breaking much bigger. So, this Emily Bronte, if she wrote about the 1960s kinda-sorta horror, made it seem like this might really be the sum of all its parts. Well, not so much. Listen to some of your Deliberations of Doom crew (Rob, Patience, Chris) put together the pieces of this gothy kinda-thriller.

Born in the wilds of northern Virginia, in 1992 Chris managed to put all of his survival skills to use and barely escaped with his life to Austin Texas, where ever since he’s dabbled in everything from plumber’s assistant to sandwich maker, from band to bar management. An opportunity to see theatrical release films for free, by becoming a critic on a local public access show called “The Reel Deal”, turned into a full time job when Chris and his friends decided to take it to the internet. They built the site Spill.com, adding multiple podcasts and animated features, to no small amount of success. During this time, a fortuitous friendship sprung up between Chris and young Brian Salisbury, who was also a local film critic, and they merged their forces of will, and their laundry list of ideas for shows, to eventually build this paradise you see before you.
