Not what it was cracked up to be.
The box of the video says "The best horror film of 1981!". Whoever wrotethis must have only seen this film that year, because that is the only wayit could be the best of anything!
This first part of the movie is barely a horror film, it is a mystery wherethe viewer already knows the answer. The dufus detective does not even makeyou care if he solves the mystery or not.
Only occasional appearances by Julia Duffy keep you awake, but not for long,as her scenes are short. Then the movie almost kicks into gear when Julianand her boy friend are making love--you get quick looks at her nude upperbody and the motivation of the aunt might become clear.
Then comes the "gore" which is mostly very badly done an acted with the nottoo surprising ending for a "horror" film.
If you are a fan of Julia Duffy and want to see her early movie work, youwill only be slightly disappointed, because of the brevity of her scenes. But Susan Tyrell has done much better!
Rated "AN" for avoid at all costs, unless you are nuts forJulia.
