Bizarre but serious horror film
1 November 1998 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

Bizarre but serious horror film that piques your interest from the opening scene. Maintains a unique and colorful atmosphere throughout. The depths of human evil are depicted here as if one were watching a fairy tale with witches and goblins (thus the Jack of nursery rhyme is chosen here). Great score, by the way, that helps to create the atmosphere throughout.

I recommend it as a good Halloween treat, but definitely not for children.
