Format: DVD
Anne Osborne (Sarah Miles) is a young widow living in a picturesque seaside village in England. Her troubled son has fallen in with a bad crowd; he belongs to a secret society run by a bully who has his own very definite ideas about the proper order of things. When Anne decides to marry a merchant sailor (Kris Kristofferson), her son takes the news quite badly and turns to his pals for help.

This movie was quite controversial in 1976, and with it's graphic sexuality and shocking cruelty, it still is. Miles is well-cast as the needy widow but sometimes overdoes the cow-eyed trances and histrionics. Kristofferson looks the part of a rugged seaman and the two have great chemistry. The creepy boys' club provides some truly cringe-worthy moments as innocent young boys commit unspeakable acts, and this movie is not for the squeamish (especially animal-lovers).

Lovely Devon locations contrast nicely with the increasing tension and overall feeling of doom. An interesting and unforgettable movie for adults.

It's an hour and three quarters with three irrelevant trailers to begin materialistically-Throughout,Kristofferson seemingly underplays the role to good effect while Miles does a sterling hysteric role in her thespian prime,really...The story is an odd somewhat implausible one translated from the Japanese by Mishima about a fatherless boy who becomes a voyeur as well as the rebellious acolyte of a gang of bourgeois Nietzschean school boys a frankly rather twee idea nowadays but the story in the original might have a had quite another mood...There are thematic elements of The Wicker Man in it as well as well as from the Children of the Damned but it's unlikely Mishima knew of these films when he wrote the story the screenplay was built from...The mood is claustrophobic and odd and at best,I would say it's a curio and one for the actors or writers fans or even for those who like relatively or actually obscure seventies films if those criteria are enough to warrant a buy-A look, yes-It may grow on you, ripen as it were,if not convert.
