Juno Temple's character is named Merrin, a reference to Father Merrin, played by Max Von Sydow, in the "Exorcist" franchise. See more »
The character Lee had two fingers on his right hand blown off by a cherry bomb in a childhood accident, as shown in the film. In the scene where Ig confronts Lee and finds that he is wearing Merrin's necklace, it can be seen that Lee is not missing any fingers on either hand. See more »
It's own Genre, like nothing I've ever seen before.
This film deserves an 11. I wish I didn't rate any of my other movies as a 10 because this deserves a score above all others.
It's so original, like nothing I've ever experienced before. It's like an adult themed fairy tale, a cross between Bridge to Terabithia and Martyrs. The symbolism and themes throughout spark deep reflection and thought. There are some rather disturbing scenes but they are so creative, so artistic.
See this and you will not be underwhelmed. Just keep an open mind or you will be completely freaked out and might want to stop watching, don't press that pause or stop button and you won't regret it.
