    I found this movie to be quite good. Bankhead playing a crazy, religious zealot imprisoning and torturing strong-willed Powers equals entertaining. They both played their roles so well, that it almost felt like watching a frightening documentary.

    I really enjoyed this crazy thriller, it was intense, and the actors are good. I highly recommend it.

    Well-acted, but relentlessly lurid, unpleasant and simply no fun to watch. A sense of humor is crucially lacking. Stephanie Powers sure was a beauty, though. Donald Sutherland's "Igor"-type role is rather embarrassing, given his subsequent achievements.

    Such a haggard movie. Although I will give credit for having the villain be a batshit raving Jesus freak, which Bankhead plays perfectly as she sort of mugs Baby Jane. And what's scarier is that these people exist. Seeing Donald Sutherland play the kindly and retarded Strong Guy was a nice break alongside with the interesting sets. Basically it's a British What Ever Happened To Baby Jane. By the way, the Misfits song inspired by this movie is much better.
