I am typically here for movies that are oops all vibes and light on plot, but this one just didn’t grab me.

I would have to agree.

While I have enjoyed a fair bit of the films that people call "elevated horror," there have also been a number of films like this where I am not convinced the filmmakers even wanted to make a horror movie. They just what felt like an exploitable indie niche. This feels like one of those.

I saw this during Salem Horror Fest 2020 (fingers crossed they have a streaming option again in the future), and was similarly let down. It's very moody, but the mood is "kinda bored."
