I was lucky enough to have a dad who owned a chain of video stores in the eighties and have seen just about every horror film going (not sure I should confess to that!!) and for me, this film manages to capture the atmosphere and the creepiness of the films I watched in my teens. Okay.. it's not The Shining [DVD] , Halloween  [DVD] or When A Stranger Calls [DVD].. but it does do a pretty good job of cranking up the tension, and it was the first film in a while that had me actually sitting on the edge of my seat.
If you're a fan of Hostel or any of the Saw sequels, then I recommend you give this one a miss. If, however, you're a fan of eighties movies such as Eyes of a Stranger [DVD]  [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC], ...Read more ›
The films does build up slowly, which to be honest makes it more watchable as you are not given anything too early, which can sometimes ruin films in my opinion. It adds to the mood and makes you want to keep watching. I also love the fact that you are not given too many characters either, which could otherwise ruin the type of community it is supposed to be set in. I think the two house owners are very well cast as both have a scary look about them, which makes the house even more creepier.
The suspense builds and then all of a sudden you are given the true identity of what lives in the house. Unlike the intro music the rest is much better and helps give a scary feel. I wont ruin it for you by telling you what happens, but in my opinion if you like classic horror films like Rosemary's Baby and films that build up tension you will love this. Loads better than the slasher style horror, which in my opinion is just gore for the sake of it. This is definitely a must for those of you who long for horror to be as it was back in those cult horror periods of the late 1970's and early 1980's.
This film deserves its place in the collection of true horror fans. Love it and can't wait to watch again. Turn the lights low and add to the atmosphere it creates for the best effect.
I really cant say too much without giving it away but the title gives you a little clue. I don't think I have felt so tense watching a film for so long! and the ending was also very good! I am looking forward to his latest offering the 'the Sacrament'
If you like your horror tense, with atmosphere which doesn't rely on gore then this is for you, please give it a go.
Its directors like Ti and Rob Zombie who are really pushing the boundaries of horror recently and I applaud them!!
But ultimately if you'd like that 80's feel that you haven't had since trawling your local video shop nearly twenty years ago looking for the one undiscovered classic that would be remebered as a classic of the genre, give this a try. I hope you won't be dissapointed.
Like any good horror there will be it's detractors, but the overwhelming feeling of dread that stays with you after the film is much more potent than what you see on screen... regardless of how well executed.

Bril - I didn't think they made them like that any more. Think 'Omen', think 'Rosemary's Baby'. Slow burner but all the better for it. Highly recommendedPublished 8 months ago by Andy Bailey
