Change the films title to welcome visitor its that good.
13 July 2003 | by (Nottinghamshire,England) – See all my reviews

This film grabs you from start to finish.The clever way that Max Von Sydow,s character Salem executes his plan is engrossing.All the acting in this film is brilliant,but special credit has to go to Trevor Howard,s performance playing an ageing world weary inspector perfectly.It says a lot for the power of this film that although i have not been able to see it for over 10 years due to no dvd or video being available in the UK, it would still be in my top 20 movies ever.The plot was so good that i thought the ending would have to let it down,but instead turns out to be one of the best bits.

A forgotten masterpiece that far too few people have seen if the number of people that have voted for it is anything to go by.
