Pros: Great use of space
Interesting use of spot lighting
Purely visual storytelling
Cons: Borders on underexposure
Little context to story
Ballerina creepy music cliche
I liked this film. It had an immersive feel to it that horror's rarely capture. The lack of dialogue leant a huge amount of tension and unanswered questions. Who is this girl? Where is she? What is she going to do?
She was in such a claustrophobic space with creepy dolls, who knows where this is going?
As much as I love the lack of context, I was reaching for some kind of explanation as to what was going on. I had no reason to like or resonate with the lead as there was no reason too. She was a character that may as well be the viewer themselves, which may have been what you were going for.
In a nutshell, I think you capture the mood and essence of horror well. Most can't. However if you are looking to make more horror in the future (which you definitely should!) I personally think you could benefit from injecting some compelling aspects to the story to add stakes, and build on your strong foundation of mood and atmosphere
Keep it up, look forward to seeing what yo duo next
