The Deeper You Dig weaves tricksy imagery with grounded performances to create a tale in which you might just find you're rooting for the wrong person... and play the fool enough to love it regardless.
While I don't think it's going to take the world by storm, it's definitely a calling card for future projects by this little family band of filmmaking fanatics. I enjoyed The Deeper You Dig very much...
The Deeper You Dig is both beautifully but simply made, and a poignant, deeply affecting film that uses a supernatural tale to articulate the almost unspeakable complexities of how mothers can connect to their children.
This is a small film that deeply deserves an audience, as accomplished and thematically vibrant as any big budget horror you can find today, and far more conversant with the thin divide between spirituality and the supernatural than most.
