Audio 2: Commentary with Director Norman Warren and Composer John Scott
A young girl is caught up in a devil cult run by her evil uncle and cousin. She can trust no one and even people she thought were dead comes back to haunt her.
Director Norman J. Warren, working from an absorbing script by David McGillivray (who appears in a flashback as a priest), relates the engrossing story at a steady pace, maintains a grimly serious tone throughout, creates and sustains a pleasingly creepy and unsettling atmosphere, and further tarts things up with a handy helping of tasty gratuitous female nudity and generous servings of raw bloody violence. Moreover, Gough’s suavely sinister presence keeps the picture humming, the remote English countryside setting projects a strong sense of isolation and vulnerability, and the surprise bummer ending packs a potently upsetting punch. John Scott’s spirited shuddery score and the crisp widescreen cinematography are both up to speed. Worth a watch.
