This is what occult filmmaking is all about
11 June 2014 | by See all my reviews

Every once in a while I discover an obscure Gem that reminds me of what film is about.

This is one of those Gems.

I procured a copy of this through a gorehouse collection which consists of 12 other equally obscure films and this is amongst the best of the collection.

Sure it contains 'aspects' of sexploitation, but nothing really extreme, and very tastefully done I might add. The way the film portrays the female body, even in the scenes of sadism, is as an art form, a vehicle of expression, not an object to be manipulated, at least not by the viewer.

The story of a girl who is about to turn "the proper age" to assist in a necromancy ritual is portrayed quite naturally.

I also find the acting exquisite and very theatrical, which the British are well known for. The female actresses come across as majestic and feminine, but with a soft, inner resilience as well. I really love this about these British actresses.

The hallucination scenes are intimate and sensually sadistic. In them we get a hint of the potential fate of Catherine and we get to look through her beautiful eyes as she unravels her own possible outcome.

The only thing slightly holding this great film experience back is the fact that it could use a clean up and decent digital transfer to capture all its atmospheric beauty. But this is an incidental problem and not necessarily a problem of the filmmakers themselves.

Which is why I still give it a full 10. I cannot blame the old film transfer problems on the filmmaker or the actors.

This is a great jewel of a film and I really love it a lot. Highly recommended.
