Despite the editing seeming disjointed which made the story confusing at times, particularly towards the end, using a structure that starts at the end and then shows the lead up to the events was a good decision that made the narrative more interesting than if it had been completely linear. It also doesn’t shy away from dark and disturbing scenes, and although they could’ve been far more effective with better acting, they’re filmed in a creative way that allows for the low budget and limited resources.
The film’s biggest downfall in the end is the casting choice for Norma who is such an important part of the narrative by the third act that it makes it hard to ignore. The emphasis put on her seemed misplaced when the other two women in the film were just as interesting but had better performances. However, the practical effects can be appreciated and it goes to show that effort went into making it, but it wasn’t enough the save the film as a whole.
