Barbara, a young teenage girl battles both real and imaginary monsters.
29 September 2017 | by See all my reviews

Outstanding! Super emotional and very unique. The film is a great mix of Pan's Labyrinth, Stranger Things and some of the great ones from the 80's. Also it's extremely emotional. Expect to get the same emotional kick in the end as you get from watching E. T and Elliott saying goodbye. It feels very timeless. Barbara played by Madison Wolfe gives an extraordinary performance. Such a tour de force from such a young actress. Wow! Can't wait to see it again.
