Great Gothic Thriller(there is not enough of these)
14 July 2001 | by btaylorrunSee all my reviews

It has mystery and suspense. It is heavy on eerie atmosphere throughout the movie which really sets the mood for the story. It has light romance which is not overblown. Peter O'toole makes a wonderful,wicked uncle. He is the only actor who could have played this role because he is very wicked yet unbelieveably charming.
