A stroll down Horror lane...
1 May 2018 | by mackteague-43615See all my reviews

Let me pretext this by saying, if you want a horror movie with a story line, do not watch this film. There will be screaming ladies, zombies, vampires, Technicolor, black and white forests, creatures from another dimension and a whole lot of creepiness, but if you want a story, go away.

This is more of an exploration of horror cinema, rather than a conventional horror film. Sure, there is a frame of a girl in an accident, recounting the fact that horror has helped her overcome her trauma, but apart from that, there is pure cinema. Suspiria rubs alongside Blow Out (the john Travolta remake of Blow Up), while we are sucked in with Night of the Hunter and Raat.

In my opinion, this is a masterpiece in reference; to be able to keep a mainstream audience impressed by an art film is a hard job, nut the BBC seems to have done it. It is a wonderful exercise in tone and suspense, and a very good film. Would recommend for anyone who needs to turn on their lights.
