(kr) wrote: A horror flick directed by Freddy Kreuger himself, Robert Englund, and co-written by Brian Helgeland, who would later go on to write some Oscar worthy films like "Mystic River" and "LA Confidential." This film is certainly not of that calibre of filmmaking, but it does offer some decent bits of horror here and there. It won't be the best horror film you've ever seen, but it's enjoyable in a Charles Band sort of way.

Music is interesting too. Patrick McGoohan is really quite somthing in it.

Made for TV and infamous amongst all the adults in the family, I finally watched this film online after confusing what they were talking about with the Trilogy of Terror (also pretty fun). I must admit, while I wasn't traumatized like all of them were , I was very entertained.The film is very dated. The creepy monsters, who I'm assuming must be like the faye from Irish folklore, look like the California Raisins today, lumbering around. To the movie's credit, they don't show them as often in the beginning, and they're far creepier when you don't know where they are. The film also shows its age in regards to the writing and style of the film, with many long full body shots you'd expect from older horror films made from Hammer or even Universal. This might take some people out of the film, and, in the beginning, might even bore them a little.However, the film, despite its flaws, is still remarkable. It builds a strong atmosphere which, while not as horrifying as it was in the 70's, remains strong enough to make hte last twenty minutes of the movie truly thrilling. The characters are all multi-dimensional and complex, which, for a horror film made for TV, is a very good thing. Of particular note is Kim Darby, who also played Mattie in the original True Grit, who is perhaps one of the most adorable looking horror movie victims of all time. Just because of how cute she is, you feel afraid for her, let alone her character arc over the course of the movie. The music is also fairly remarkable, really adding to the haunting atmosphere. It reminded me of the theme from Rosemary's Baby, though not quite as bone chilling. Of course, if one talks about sound, they need to discuss the whispering voices throughout the film. There's an old saying that nothing is scarier than what you can't see, and, while modern viewers might not be trembling in terror when Raisin people come out and heave people into the fireplace, the whispers in the dark are truly effective, even now.
