This movie is one of the most truly frightening I've ever seen!
This film scared the crap out of me when I saw it in the theatre in 1971. It was the middle of the day and I was too afraid to walk home after seeing this by myself when I was 13 years old. Too bad it's not on DVD. I would love to see how this one holds up after all these years! This and "The Other" (not the new film called "The Others," although that is a great current thriller!) were the ones that really freaked me out when I was a kid. Check 'em out, if you dare!
