With all the spooky movies and monster movies and even the grind up movies like Fargo (1996), you would think you would be desensitized to this sort of thing?
With older movies like The Deadly Mantis (1957) ASIN: 6302763916 you would see a few soap bubbles and you know that the native will so be munchies. But this one is down right creepy. And talk about tension, this movie builds and builds but you have no idea what it is building until it is too late.
The first clue that this is going to be a good movie is the cast list, which includes, but is not limited to, Fred Astaire, Melvyn Douglas, Douglas Fairbanks Jr., John Houseman, and Patricia Neal [The Fountainhead (1949) ASIN: 6301969294]. And where did they find the sexy and exciting Alice Krige (also of Star Trek "Borg Queen" fame)? She could attack me anytime.
Guess I should mention that the plot line was good also.
