Kritiker-recensioner

Avoided seeing it for years, just because it sounded too painful – and so it is, but it’s also played in a dreamlike hothouse register from the very beginning, hysterical Mom warping the family dynamic even before she wills her son back from beyond the grave; Clark’s style is fevered and emphatic (see e.g. the low wide-angles and weird ritualistic staging as the family march down to their first encounter with the zombie), while the score alternates tinkly piano with obscure roars and hisses.

Like The Other and Images, Deathdream is also something of a tale of doubling, albeit of a more standard horror variety. It’s also the only explicitly socially engaged film of the three, wrestling as it does—in its admirably crude way—with the ghosts of the ongoing Vietnam War, making it the most outwardly political horror movie of the entire era. This isn’t allegory, but the living, breathing, rotting real thing.
