The imagery and nightmarish world that our character must go through to learn the truth of her fate is top class, and there are genuine creepy moments laden throughout the movie. The acting is very fair considering most 'actors' were just locales from the film set, but the movie works just fine. In fact countless horror movies have copied many scenes from this film, you end up losing count half way through.
The one criticism towards the film could be that you know what's coming and the cards are dealt early on, but it's such an horrific and glorious encounter that you don't mind one bit. A very important horror movie for the genre.
This review is from the Criterion 2 disc edition which has 2 versions of the movie, commentary, and a ton of extras with booklet so well worth getting over the other editions available.
Without spoiling the film it isn't hard to discover the twist but the films acting, amazing score and stunning on location cinematography makes it unforgettable.
