E Johnson

A horror film for adults depicting how literally our youth may come back to haunt us in our old age. Alice Krige is absolutely chilling in a way that no slasher-film boogey man could be. There are numerous scenes that gave me the willies, with the biggest being the bathtub scene with Craig Wasson. I think the presence of the two asylum escapees is unnecessary, and the plot bogs down in areas, or this film would deserve 4 stars. A clear example of how mood and nuance when coupled with outright scare tactics can make a movie truly frightening on an adult level.
