User Reviews

the twists might be a little more linear than the writer might've initially hoped!
23 January 2014 | by See all my reviews

'Dominique' is a rather Creaky British Gothic melodrama from 1978 with a quality cast that, frankly, outshines the rather lackluster material; all that said, I remain a total geek for atmospheric, haunted house spookshows, and 'Dominique' still proved to be a marginally entertaining affair; even though the plot is wholly derivative, and the twists might be a little more linear than the writer might have initially hoped! The fault is in the hackneyed, uninspired writing, as the direction really is first rate, and the moody lighting is quite exceptional, reminding one of Argento's bar-raising 'Suspiria'. For those more unforgiving Brit Horror fans seeking some admittedly tame, late night horror hokum, you most certainly could do far worse than 'Dominique'.
