This is one of those movies no one talks about - but if you've seen it once: it will never leave you. I saw it on the big screen as a teenager. I stayed in the theater and saw it again and then I returned the next day....展开Look, I am not nuts, this is one of the finest scary movies ever made. It is deceptively simple to look at. However, the cast and crew put together one fine and magical horror story.
If you miss this story, you've missed one of the quiet classics. It mixes fantasy with good story telling and is bound to leave you fascinated.
Uta Hagen gained my reverence after watching this movie. The Udvanorky Brothers did such an outstanding job: they practically carried this entire movie with a eclectic mix of childlike innocence and selfish evil that I just do not understand why they never made another movie again! This movie has made them a legend in my mind - they guide me back to the first time I saw this and I wasn't that much older than they were - that crossroads between wonderment and knowledge that stays with one for a lifetime.
This period horror piece should be lauded and respected and more - rediscovered or perhaps just discovered by the world and stand as a hallmark of fine film making and supernatural horror and mystery.
