    "Directors really knew how to develop disturbing movies back in the 1980s. Around that time, there was a trend of experimentation with surrealism in movies, so, without ever having watched or even heard of this movie before, I am not surprised to hear of how intriguing this film is. Most reviewers on Amazon are fascinated by the movie and give it high ratings. There are other surreal movies from this period that are out there, but this may very well be one of the best."
