Overdue for a DVD release
I haven't seen this film in many years now, but it has always stayed with me. It has a terrific creepy air to it. The feeling of desolation, the barbaric local thugs led by the perfectly cast Oliver Reed; the lovely and vulnerable Carol Lynley, trying to unlock the mysteries of her childhood; the jazzy score (I can still remember the main titles - the camera peering through the windshield of that cool Thunderbird convertible looking upon Ms. Lynley's gorgeous face while the reflection of trees pass over her image and all the while the peculiar and somewhat jarring title music underscores the visuals). Great stuff. Sadly underrated and now, seldom seen, this film is a perfect companion piece to Ms. Lynley's other top drawer film - 1965's "Bunny Lake Is Missing". A DVD release is in order.
