Vastly underrated, unpromoted, then deliberately buried...
17 July 2005 | by See all my reviews

Fraker is a cinematographer, and not just your plain vanilla camera cranker, either. He's been responsible for the look of many of Steven Spielberg's early films, including "Close Encounters Of The Third Kind". He was also instrumental in seeing that some of our most beloved and distinctive TV series made it to the screen, notably the original "Outer Limits". This was his first outing as a director (he's only done a couple more before returning to the job he's known best for). It has a weird, psychotic look. When you enter this world, it's a strange one, where the surreal becomes reality. You watch this and, first of all, you'll think you've got it figured out right from the beginning. You won't. This is also Sondra Locke's first film, and she is frenetic, creepy, spooky. Fraker has created one of those classic 'old dark house' movies, but it's about way more than that. This is about power and manipulation and taking it to extremes; about the ultimate control freaks. It's very dreamlike throughout, and it builds to a feverish climax. You probably won't like the characters, but then, you're not supposed to. Sally Kellerman is very good in this. She had previously worked with Fraker in an amazing black and white episode of "The Outer Limits" called, I believe, "The Bellero Shield", opposite Martin Landau. Robert Shaw is elegant and clueless as the husband, and the wonderful Mary Ure is perfection as his melting, bizarre ex-wife. I saw this when it came out, in an empty theater, on a Saturday afternoon during the summer's heat. It's stuck with me a long time, because I dig unique thrillers. I had never seen anything like this before or since. It's in the same league as that old classic "Hush, Hush Sweet Charlotte", but it's edgier. Watch this as though you've never been to a movie in your life. Forget where you think it's taking you and let it lead you to the peculiar place it's really going. Seek this one out.
