“A slowly tightening noose of terror… This film is unique – the horror of the situation derives more from what is implied rather than what is seen. A young girl violinist who is has an insatiable need for attention from her father invokes a dark force to eliminate her rival, thus granting her the star spot in the orchestra. But when her father informs her that he cannot attend her performance due to an “appointment” – she invokes the mysterious force against him. The visual/audio effects are incredible: some very Hitchcockian touches throughout, especially the “invasion of the house” and the “restaurant” scene. The car crash scene is a masterpiece of surrealism. The film wisely does not plunge us right into the bizarre but slowly draws us in – until it is too late to escape.” [imdb]
