This movie can stand in the crowd with The Oman, The Exorcist, The Haunting, The Innoncents as one of the Horror/Supernatural stories that delivers big. Now if your defination of Horror is Jason or Freddie or Mike Myers, then when you've evolved past nethanderal should you view this movie, or else it is a waste of time. The movie is very well acted, written, directed, etc. a classic, one of the films that is not re-makeable. Shows you enough and lets your imagination fill in the blanks.
