A good movie, albeit quite slow. I first watched this movie in my late teens at night alone in the dark and it never scared me then, and even less so now. Well written and directed, and an amazing idea for a movie, but there could have been a better execution
I love everything about this film from script to direction to acting to cinematography to musical score. Eerie & creepy perfection in every direction !
good for a modern horror film, but still bad.
Reminds me of the Junji Ito comic about the peeping tom in terms of cyclicality. And in terms of weird, inexplicable body horror. Very fun.
