This is a great Southern Gothic film, a genre we don't see enough examples of, especially of this caliber. To the one who didn't like its brutality, all I have to say is, A) it's fairly subtle compared to many horror films, and B) What were you expecting? A Merchant Ivory Production. Plus, I think Bill Condon, Jennifer Jason Leigh and Judith Ivey all did wonderful jobs - elevating what could have been a by the numbers exploitation film into something that's haunted me for years.
