The Barbie scene was the best part of the whole movie, she acted the crap out of that!
Sad this is one of the few Hammer movies on Shudder, a pretty boring film who's only saving grace is Eric Porters outstanding acting ability.
Great characters and story. When it was all over, I felt slightly undersatisfied though.
An above-average Hammer horror-thriller, with unexpected depths of character and pathos. The sadness and sense of unearned, inevitable tragedy make this one worth repeat viewings and/or DVD purchase. Great to see such surprising gems on Shudder!
