Rescued somewhat by the charismatic presence of Sisto, this is an otherwise forgettable and rather predictable affair encompassing numerology, religious superstition, murder, ritual suicide, and non-consensual cranial surgery in a narrative that follows a census taker to a small town that has had the same population (436) for more than a hundred years, unsurprisingly, he finds more than he bargained for.
