Horror legend...
14 April 2007 | by polarnimedaSee all my reviews

One of the movies that everyone knows, but no one have. Master piece for its time, because of atmosphere that all can feel- like something raw inside themselves. Movie seems to relieve something that all of us have inside, but in a dark corner. It's something that excites us, but still something that we sometimes want just out of us. And if you want something similar, than you are looking for nothing. Or, you're looking for something similar to a bad dream. I guess that that kind of feeling (one that this movie produces), can maybe be found, and only sometimes in some places... Like when you're alone in a creepy and dark place, with a long way to home, that you know you have to cross- where staying or turning back is even greater fear... It's a phenomenon that is hard to explain. It's more than you can talk about. Though movie is not long- it's effects are. And maybe it's better not to watch it alone- or it actually is?
