The story of Austrian director duo Severin Fiala and Veronika Franz is a bit of a family thing (but not as disturbing as in their movie, rest assured). Veronika is the partner and Severin is the nephew of director Ulrich Seidl. Severin Fiala has directed short features such as Kern and Elephant. Veronika Franz has co-written the scripts of Seidl’s films and is a journalist for the Austrian daily Kurier. They have teamed together to bring us this devilish piece of psychological nightmare horror, which has already garnered quite a few awards, among which the Silver Méliès at the latest Sitges film festival.
