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!

Two stars because the one character we wanted to see get it the most didn't. Also, unlike some other reviewers, we didn't find Anna particularly sympathetic at all, just a bit pathetic. The other characters' complete blindness to her trancing out was quite unbelievable after a point.

It wasn’t an instant immersing Hammer film for me. But boy oh boy, I’m glad I stuck to it. ...Stick to it, Windows. Stick to it.
