Nonstarter I rated this film among the ones that I found myself genuinely entertained by. The first thing that stood out about the film was I was able to appreciate it for what it was. I was surprised that I had a genuine reaction of fear to some of the things that were happening on screen.

Everything about the story and the element of creepiness and suspense was done so perfectly, and I think this had to do with how simple of a concept it was. Nothing in theaters nowadays I think has the same appeal. Something else that I think contributed to this was the format of films back then. The grainy black and white imagery somehow adds to the creepiness in my opinion. I think there are a few reasons for this. There’s no color, so everything constantly mess lifeless or gloomy to some degree.

The grainy quality of the film, for me sort of created a constant sense of intense, Jittery suspense. This could be one of the reasons why some modern film producers like Question Tormenting see it as a necessary element in their films. Pottering Voyage to the moon Cinderella Jack and the preinstall
