First off, the film is absolutely gorgeous. The framing is almost poetic and takes full advantage of object placement and empty space. Cool filters and light are used to give it a classic grindhouse feel. The shadows and deep contrast are used to emphasize any bit of color. While breaking into the house, the scene is devoid of color. The main characters are present and center. Above them a security light douses their faces in a sickly green. All this lends to a very surreal eerie atmosphere. It feels like some sick twisted dream or fairy tale. It’s all very Greek in a way; a group of adventures climb into the lair of some mythical beast for a boon.
