    A good time but not particularly frightening, nor is it exactly the horror flick that it's billed to be. I felt that more could have been done, but at the same time I think it achieves everything it sets out to do. I give it points for being more suggestive than blunt.
    spoiler. In a strange way it reminded me of Romero's similarly skeptical film Martin, which also plays with the audience's expectations and willingness to suspend disbelief in the supernatural.

    one list? no way! i wasn't expecting to love this movie so much. i thought it was absolutely brilliant - i can't stop thinking about it and it's been a week. i instantly put it in my top 10 horror movies of all time. vincent price is perfect, the effects, mise en scene (especially sound!) was legendary. loved it. 5 years 3 months ago

    Hmm heard that this was supposed to be one of the classics but it wasn't that good, quite overrated.

    It had a nice (corny) build up and I'll admit that one scene got a jump out of me - though that scene was the only possible one that could scare you.

    Vincent Price was good as always, but wasn't enough to carry the film for me.
