Worst acting I've ever seen!
7 September 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I only caught the last 10 minutes of this by accident on a satellite channel I had newly installed. The acting was so bad I stood there laughing, although it was not intended to be comic. Everybody spoke in an exaggerated English accent. The 'evil boy' said "Goodnight Mother" although the action was meant to be in modern times. Whenever he spoke, the other characters all froze until he had delivered all his questions in the script with long pauses, instead of answering the first one like anyone would. Although obviously I had no idea what the film had been about, I was disappointed that the ending didn't give away any clues either. I guessed the film was made in the 1960's, and was very surprised to learn it was actually 1980. I wondered if the English accents were deliberately exaggerated to promote possible US sales.
