Many a film has tried to replicate this wonderfully off-kilter vibe -- and a few have come close -- but none has quite pulled it off.

No, it hasn't dated particularly well, and Hardy's rampant misogynistic tendencies feel even more appalling now. But it's still an unmissable one-off.

An absolute must for all serious movie buffs.

The strengths are overpowering; Edward Woodward's towering performance, Anthony Shaffer's brilliantly nasty script, Paul Giovanni's weirdie folk music, and that matchlessly horrifying ending.

October 24, 2013
A pleasingly literate script by Anthony Shaffer ("Sleuth") toys with the conventions of missing-person stories while capturing a sense of menace lurking beneath the everyday.

The conclusion is chilling, disturbing and perfectly in keeping with what has taken place before.
