Stylish thriller that never shows the elusive monster. It's all through the power of suggestion. For the slow burn psychological trappings of this particular story, and evidently a limited budget, it works. But I'd rather see the shark in Jaws and the dinosaurs in Jurassic Park than hardly at all.

The 'evil' in this film is never seen. There is some clever camera work and uses of shadows that not only made up for the lack of budget, but also proved influential to all thrillers that came after. It's a decent flick, with some memorable scenes.

For me the cinematography is the prize in this film, it's excellent. I saw this film first as a child, and considered it special, but didn't know why. Since maturing and viewing it several times as an adult, I know now it's a combination of many factors...the acting, the direction, the cinematography, it all works extremely well...even though the bulk of it was filmed on a soundstage, the stark lighting makes it work beautifully, it delivers.

Except movie. Jacques Toeurneur was wonderful despite his budgetary limitations.
