Nice views of the French countryside. The movie drags a little, but not too bad of a movie overall. A pretty predictable ending by todays standards.
The only thing cooler than early 70s British folk horror is early 70s British folk horror set in the French countryside. The bizarre interconnectedness of the small cast & the cinematography, in which everything seems to be out in the open at first, until you discover how much is really hidden, gave this a creepy atmosphere I’ve never seen before.

Amazing atmosphere. The craft on display in this film is top notch. Very absorbing, subtle scripting, and a lot of tension and depth despite very little incident. Highly recommended! A shame Robert Fuest did not get to direct that many films, because he was clearly a very talented craftsman.
could've been really good but it just never went anywhere.
