The movie sat unreleased in the United States until it was discovered, along with the film Absolution, by a movie buff who believed there were good films sitting unreleased. This film and Absolution were the only two unreleased films he found in his search in the United States. Both subsequently saw release thanks to his efforts. See more »

I am a very big fan of slow moving, atmospheric horror movies. In fact, "Full Circle" aka "The Haunting of Julia" is probably the movie that got me into these kind of movies. However, the truth is that many people out there go into horror movies expecting thrill-a-second horror and blood and guts everywhere. This movie is not like that at all. It is built completely on atmosphere, character development, and a slow building plot that eventually leads to a shocking and unexpected conclusion. This is the reason i love this movie. I think that atmosphere contributes so much in unnerving us and sending chills down our spines and that is what horror is all about, isn't it? I love the music, the characters, and just about everything else. If you are into films such as "Don't Look Now" and "Let's Scare Jessica to Death" you should check this one out if you can find it.
