X was the real YIt turns out that the real land of the shadows are the friend we made along the way.

There were jump scares, so this counts as a horror.

So, this was much more of a fantasy movie than a horror movie but I'm going to count it.

This debuted yesterday (today in Nuuk), and was billed as the first Greenlandic fantasy movie so we decided to go see it. We lucked out because the subtitles ended up being in English, and not Danish like I had assumed.

This was a small-budget affair, Marc Fussing Rosbach wrote, directed, produced, did vfx, and acted in it, and with that level of expectations set it was pretty good. There were a bunch of good jokes in it, the camera-work was good (incidentally, it's pretty great that drones are cheap enough that small-budget movies can get aerial shots), and the special effects looked way better than a one-person vfx teams should be able to produce.

The movie had some pacing issues. The middle was a bit too long and slow, and the ending was rushed and left some things hanging, but overall, I definitely enjoyed this.
