    Morlang is a repressed creep whose worst crime, as far as the audience is concerned, is dullness.

    Morlang has surprises up its sleeve that even the seasoned genre fan may not see coming.
  5. 70
    Penning's film applies too much force behind its hairpin turns, but broad scripting and acting are counterbalanced by crisp photography, shivery sound design, and well-chosen debts.
  6. The movie ever so slowly builds to a startling finale, one that puts new meaning into passive-aggressive relationships.

    Penning's feature directing debut, which he co-wrote, has visual flair but lacks the tightly plotted storytelling this type of film requires. Relying on mood isn't nearly enough to make the outcome compelling.
  8. 50
    A postcard-pretty psychological drama that's too moody and enigmatic for its own good.
  9. A portentous and goopy Dutch drama.
