Beautifully poignant, but only for the patient.

This is NOT a casual watch, nor is it really a horror film in the traditional sense. You Won't Be Alone is so bizarre, unconventional, and sometimes grotesque that I'm honestly baffled that it got funding. But I'm very glad that it did.

It's technically a witch movie, but it's also kind of an alien movie. Let me explain...

No spoilers here, but the premise follows a young witch in the 19th century who was kept isolated from humanity until adulthood, then experiences what it's like to be human for the first time by taking over the bodies of villagers and living out their lives.

The rest of the film is a soulful meditation that is essentially an alien observing how humans think, feel, and how they treat one another. It gives a very unique perspective on the simple things in life that we often take for granted, both good and bad.

It made me grateful for the full spectrum of human pleasures and pains-happiness and heartbreak.

The weirdness of the witch elements and the story's slow pace will definitely turn a lot of people off. The fact that a good chunk of the film just portrays normal simple lives being lived makes some moments feel rather repetitive. Sometimes I found myself thinking "I get the point, and I like the point, but let's move on now."

Still, this is one of those films that had such ambition that I can't help but admire it-even the small stuff I didn't personally care for.

If you are in a thinking mood, this is a soulful, dark drama that will certainly satisfy.

Haunting, beautiful, and subtly profound

Just saw this at our local arthouse cinema. An astonishing film, and all the more so for being the director's feature-length debut. Complex and tightly-woven storytelling without a single wasted shot. First-rate ensemble acting and a score to match. Horror, yes, but with a palpable sense of longing that takes the story beyond the genre into something far more grand and sweeping. A friend described it as Hagazussa meets Tree of Life and that's as good a description as you're likely to find. It's going to stick with me for a good while--haunting, beautiful, and subtly profound.

Not your father's midnight horror flick

This is not a Noomi Rapace vehicle. Instead, she fits into the ensemble seamlessly. And even though there are some lambs in it, it does not resemble Lamb (2021). Granting credence to the witchcraft and magic stuff does something way beyond delivering a cheap thrill: it puts the viewer into the mindset of that dark ages Serbian village. Those people would have been dead certain that they saw fingernails become claws, or mistaken a woman badly burned in a bungled witch-burning for a spectral being. The tools and textiles of that pre-pre-industrial village are exquisitely authentic. All this is well worth the candle--even if those villagers did not have candles. The only film I think it compares with is La guerre du feu (1981).
