Passon makes the creepy stuff too low-key, less a case of building dread than growing impatience.

Allows Passon to work with a larger, more complex canvas while still displaying her intuitive understanding of women seeking to overthrow repression and societal expectation.

The movie, though, which was adapted by Mark Kruger, is all surface polish and play-acted oddness, from the cloying symmetry of the stalely composed shots to the cartoonish depiction of some awfully complicated - nigh perverse - family relationships.

Under Stacie Passon's precise direction, this gothic fable of isolation and violence expertly treads a fine line between tragedy and camp.

Passon... sharply channels the author's atmosphere of dread, paranoia, and isolation, making the past feel prescient.
