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.

While the narrative is unclear in parts and there is a cheap made-for-television look to it, the film succeeds on many levels. To echo a previous reviewer, there is a certain elegance to how the film unfolds. I also loved the film's atmosphere, particularly as the conclusion approached. Leslie Gilb gives a creepy portrayal of Lemora, a character whose pallid, expressive face lingers in the mind. It is probably best not to go into this film with extremely high expectations; it is what it is.

Creepy and atmospheric with a decent sound track.

This is odd mix of cinematic error and several minutes of true brilliance.

The less a viewer knows about this movie before watching it, the more effective it probably is. Lila is so angelic and beautiful, the viewer dreads constantly for her safety and virtue, but her nonchalant, Alice-down-the-rabbit-hole reactions keep the movie from actually being frightening. The nighttime Victorian/depression-era sets and the costumes are unsettling, and Lemora is definitely disturbing both in appearance and in motivation. Glad I watched it, but it was more subdued than I like for movies in this genre.

Silly attempt at a titillating psychological story, Freud might be proud, but Jung would find it a load of bollocks

There's a very good plot somewhat hidden, at times, by inept writing and/or low-budget film-making. I thought it at first as only worthwhile to vampire fans, but, whether by intent or chance, there are a number of issues at play that may attract B movie and horror fans as well. I found it intriguing, but feel it could have been so much more. A film deserving of a remake.

Along with blood for dracula this is one of my all time favorite vampire movies. A great reminder of why the vampire has sustained in cinema for so long after the travesty of the slew recent vampire tv shows and movies.

I feel uncomfortable
