This starts off being something of a cross between Society and Rosemary's Baby and for the first half hour is really quite creepy. For the rest of the film things are distinctly more nasty and occasionally almost too repulsive to watch. Possibly budgetary restraints led to most off the movie being shot in just the one colour, brown, but not without effect. In fact the gloom is about as cheerful as this nasty film gets, there are splashes of humour but you are rarely in the mood for smiling and from the spooky Filipino maid, Cupid, to the manic leading man and his almost dead mother and crazed sister all is very, very wrong. I cannot understand the bad reviews this film has received because to me it seemed a shockingly different effort in the horror field. I suppose much has been borrowed from earlier horrors but there is enough that is different to certainly set it apart from much more celebrated films.
