Dull, but passable little slasher/thriller with very little to reccomend to slasher fans or normal moviegoers. There is, however, a hilarious sequence where the "final girl" runs around her house fully naked, while being pursued by the killer in the film's climax.
It has an interesting plot and Cameron Mitchell is delightful, but besides a nifty, very unexpecting plot twist in the middle of the movie, it's all pretty boring.
Disturbing and creepy British horror film with a whole bunch of memorable moments. It's quite the creepy little film, mostly due to Stanley Myers' creepy score, Shelia Keith's odd ball performance, and, of course, Pete Walker's masterful direction.
This is a hard movie to forget once you've seen it.
While I'm not sure if it's my favorite film of the year, it's certainly close. Those expecting a comedy, should look elsewhere. I thought many parts were hilarious, but my audience seemed a little on the fence about whether or not it was appropriate to laugh. It's not everybody's cup of tea, but everything about this film is top notch. Charlize Theron is clearly incapable of giving a bad performance and when she has awesome material to work with, like here, she can be nothing short of brilliant. Patton Oswalt also deserves some praise for his heartbreaking performance.
I hope this film finds an audience on DVD! It deserves so much better than the reception it's gotten in theaters so far.
