American author, very beautiful, moves into country house in England. Her search for peace and quiet is interrupted by apparitions of murdered anarchists, the maniac who butchered them, and also a horny gamekeeper. But is it all in her mind?
A hotch-potch of horror staples that don't gel. A lacklustre cast. Murders that are more funny than scary. Boring sex scenes and a weird bit with the English husband playing away with his mistress at some sort of swingers club in London. It's all done on the cheap and if you haven't the money you have to be resourceful and build suspense through suggestion rather than rely on poorly timed shocks.
The person who gave this 5-stars presumably worked on the film. It all depends on how you interpet Amazon's star-rating system. 5 to mean "I loved it", which is all well and good, or 5 to mean 'this is a 5-star movie', a 'top of the table' success story. Do buy or rent it and tell me that my 2-stars - meaning "I don't like it" AND "it is a bit cack" are coincidental. The happy marriage of subjective opinion and the truth.
There are other better flicks where an American comes to Britain and the locals freak her out. That one with Demi Moore, for instance. What's it called? Or The Turn Of The Screw.
