Critics reviews

Medak generates terror not just by employing specific, repeated items and motifs (a wheelchair, a bouncing ball, a music-box melody) but also—as with a young girl’s nightmare—by showing supernatural sights only after first suggesting them, by means of characters’ descriptions, in order to inspire the audience’s unsettled imagination.
