With his 2016 dazzler The Giant, director Johannes Nyholm gave himself a hard act to follow. He makes an admirable try with this evil little picture, which posits Groundhog Day as a tale of parental grief and castrating male cowardice.
That’s probably enough of a recommendation already. Sadly, the film’s perverse charms decline in inverse proportion to its investment in a bizarre premise that includes a trio of music-box folk demons who like to (literally) shoot for the dick or encourage bestial cunnilingus. Expect to be tickled in all the wrong places, if not entirely satisifed.
