Hoorah for stuffed cats!
3 September 2002 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

What a pity that today's films rely so heavily on special effects.

Here is a perfect example of how what you don't see is much more unnerving than what you do. Do not watch this film alone at night unless you are already in bed and have the remote control to hand.
