Darling, come to bed. Or not.
13 February 2016 | by (The Undertow) – See all my reviews

An author finds his spooky fiction comes true. Or is it the other way round?

Hmmm. Early on there's a line about how welcome literate horror is, but I disagree - plain horror is plenty fine, and this ain't it.

A turbulent couple find themselves isolated, yet fail to resolve their conflict even after a strange intervention. Doesn't really work as a story, and the horror climax is daft and feeble.

I was thinking Hotel California, Don't Look Now, The Comfort Of Strangers etc, but I'm not sure what they were getting at in the end, or even what their conflict was. There's a pregnancy theme, but it seems an unpleasant offshoot of male disgust and not worth thinking about.

Performances are good, direction and editing OK. The music is slumming it in this company.
