Having only seen a bit of this before, badly cut and worn print, I was surprised at the elegance of the film. A very delicate balance between innocence and something almost indecent ( a word I never use)with the interactions of Lemora, Lila Lee, and the children is quite unnerving. A lot here to think about.
Cheap, heavy handed, but...effective. The feeling of being a child in the dark was somehow realized. Mostly through well done night filming, avoiding the cool blue Speilberg effect that takes the night out of nighttime.
I feel uncomfortable
