Anticipating Val Lewton
5 June 2010 | by (london) – See all my reviews

I think that the other reviewer rather prefers the overstatement of todays slashers eg "Friday The 13th",to more understated horror films.During the Second world war a number of films were produced which dealt with the afterlife.the most famous being "A Matter of life And Death".People wanted to believe that their sacrifice was not in vain and that though left behind could look forward to meeting their deceased friends and relatives in the next world.This is one such film only with a rather creepy malevolent streak,very reminiscent of the films of Val Lewton which were to follow.It is true that many scenes are understated,but that was the way things were in those days.Death was common place,after all you could be killed by a bomb hitting the cinema in which you were watching it before the end of this film.You really cannot judge films of a different era by standards of today.This film was totally unknown to me before i saw it and i would say that if you are interested in the genre this is certainly worth catching up on.
