Seriously it is a brilliant film - anyone who loves Last House on the Left or Night Train Murders...look this up, it is BETTER.

It's a truly odd experience and the ending will leave you with your jaw on the floor. Seriously off the beaten track, this one. Although I wouldn't say it's better than Last House on the Left or Night Train Murders, this is a far cry from either of those films and I wouldn't really compare this to those, as they're entirely different, both in subject matter and execution.

Oh I would say it was on a par with Last House at least (I think it is better...)!

It does have that wonderful, domestic killing at the end though like Last House...OK. the bit where the baby sitter gets caught breast feeding to overgrown man-baby is ace, "...nothing? You had his damn tit in your mouth and you call that nothin'?....get her out of here before I kill her..." etc.

This film has to be seen by more people, it is simply too good to pass by and a real non stopper....1 hour 20 feels like 30 mins.

RELEASE IT ALMAR!

Taped this off FILM4 a few years back, when they used to show decent movies! Think EATING RAOUL was playing the same night... wonderful stuff, and a very strange choice for director Ted Post, whose other filmic choices were far more mainstream... a UK release would be MOST welcome...
