The Vigil

The Vigil ★★½

Loved the premisse, it was a interesting concept to work with!

That said, I didn't find the movie as appealing or engaging as I thought it would be... the execution had some ups and downs and I felt that the supernatural horror elements were a bit all over the place. It could have been more focused, I don't know if the two distinct backstories of the protagonist helped either, I'd rather they had stuck to one of them, probably the one related the adaptation outside the orthodox world. The younger brother plotline felt too forced and distracting. The visuals were good, though, besides the exaggerated darkness, and I also enjoyed the acting.
