Editorial Reviews

New York Times - Dave Kehr
Mr. Moll frames this film in an expansive, wide-screen style that undercuts the standard visual clichés of claustrophobic thrillers.... Mr. Moll...has the wit and acuity to suggest that a brief encounter with the dark side might be a strengthening experience for a family structure weakened by modern urban living.... This is a strange and funny film, smart, complex and difficult to shake.
Los Angeles Times - Kevin Thomas
Moll, in only his second feature, evokes a sense of foreboding, playing the routine against the unnerving, the humorous against the sinister, with a wit and deftness that might have impressed Hitchcock.
