It spooked me a little the first time I saw it, back in the late Seventies or early Eighties. It was mostly the wedding scene with its mannequins, I think. I used to have a kind of phobia about mannequins, large dolls, ventriloquist dummies, and things like that. Plus marriage is pretty frightening. I used to have nightmares about being forced to get married. And the reanimated but horribly burn-scarred blank-eyed blind guy, with his cane tap, tap, tapping as he drew closer was pretty creepy. Perhaps subliminal fears of blindness and disfigurement were at work here. It's not a great movie by any means, but it's one of the few things I ever saw on TV that actually creeped me out a little, probably because it managed to hit some of my psychological buttons.
