Endre's rating of the film Next of Kin

Haunted by the nightmare visions of many masters, and indebted to a certain silent film brilliance harking back to Murnau (there's some shockingly moody cuts, beautifully uncanny silhouettes and melodiously disturbing slow-motion here), but creates a mood all of its own, desperately infused by that maxim so dear to the horror genre: remember that you shall die. And remember that you do not have control of your life.
