Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Robert Firsching
An interesting little oddball chiller about a young girl (Jodie Foster) who lives alone with a dark secret. Social workers and all manner of concerned adults stop by to find out why no one ever sees her parents, and much of the film is spent exploring her daily existence bearing the burden of this subterfuge. Of course, many of those who come to visit her never leave the house again, and it all seems to have something to do with whoever - or whatever - is in the cellar. Martin Sheen, in a quietly chilling performance, plays a strange young man with an unusual interest in young girls who stops by to hit on her every so often. Foster is superb as usual, and this is the perfect film for those interested in contemporary scares without buckets of scarlet.

    High on the creepy scale

    What I love about this movie is the performances, all of the actors did a fantastic job, especially Jodie Foster and Marin Sheen. They pulled off strong, believable characters that stuck with you. Still it is rather unnerving, but definitely unforgettable. Not for young children.

    A Long Forgotten Gem

    Jodie Foster, as many of you know, started acting as a child; first in commercials, then TV (Here's Lucy, The Brady Bunch), before hitting it big in the movie, Taxi Driver, and the TV version of Paper Moon. In 1976, she made The Little Girl Who Lives Down The Lane, a taut little tale of suspense made in Canada. More of a "howcatchum" than a "whodunnit", Foster plays an annoyingly stunning teenager living in a small New England town, but for some reason, nobody ever seems to see her parents. Not the landlady (Alexis Smith, from Sondheim's Follies), or her creepy son, played by a very young Martin Sheen. Foster plays her part with a strong independence and maturity. A free thinker when many people still were not. Young Jodie had a brief (back to the camera) nude scene that was always snipped from TV prints. I was understandably surprised to see this scene in the uncut version on this DVD, which shows me that we may have never seen this film the way it was intended, and for this reason, The Little Girl Who Lives Down The Lane, is a real time capsule, and a significant part of Ms. Foster's body of work. It sits proudly in my DVD collection, inbetween Gerard Damiano's Let My Puppets Come (If you like Comedy Central's Crank Yankers, you will love that film), and Little Shop of Horrors (The original).

    Boring & Dumb

    I thought this movie was cheesy and boring. I bought it because it has Jodie Foster in it as a young actress and it was worth that as she has talent and it's fun to see who she was then and who she is now.

    I Also Recommend:

    This is a very disturbing movie

    Even as a young girl, Jodie Foster had the ability to establish a strong character. In this movie, the character is supposed to be creepy and make you uncomfortable and she is able to pull it off. Paired with Martin Sheen, this movie is very effective. Keep in mind, though, that it is very unnerving.

    NOT PG

    I remember watching parts of this movie when I was a kid and enjoying it. I saw it at the store and picked it up. It was marked as being rated PG, so I brought it home to share with my family.

    This movie is NOT a PG movie. The "F" word is used several times and there is nudity. I tried to ignore the language, but when the character was removing clothes to jump in bed for a sex scene, we had to turn it off quickly.

    This was my first movie purchase from B&N, and will most likely be my last.
