Like David Lynch directing a zombie movie. Loved it.

Such a bizarre story I totally loved. At times, it’s a little slow moving, but I couldn’t stop watching.

Slow and boring to the end. Not a 70's cult gem as claimed. If you're looking for a true cult gem seek out I Drink Your Blood!

What a crazy and at times painfully dull movie. It keeps pulling you back in tho so it’s worth a watch

Really fantastic, in both senses of that word. We float along with the main characters through this uncanny tale as though we were sharing a dream that slowly transmogrifies into a Freudo-Lovecraftian nightmare. Featuring a narrative with novelistic density and very evocative, occasionally stunning visuals. Recommended!
