    Just curious but is this the directors cut?
    I believe there are a few versions of this, but kind of confused which is which?
    Another gem.
    Thank you RL!

    Some movie!
    Saw this some time ago, but cut up with ads although it was in English so it made it slightly …slightly…. easier to follow. If …that’s possible!

    Anyway a great psychological film and Susan Hampshire is incredibly beautiful in every scene. A real ..English rose! …

    Thanks for this.

    Going to see if I can track down ‘The Legend of Doom House’ (English version) as a comparison. Thanks again.

    This film is a masterpiece in it-self.I saw that in 1974 in an Hotel in Boucherville on a 12″ B/W TV with a bad antenna,were I was living in. This film may be called anything
    but I think that the evil ways of humankind is very representative
    of what human can do or dont .But this film have a lot of stars from
    at least 15 countries.WoW what an accord of personalities. My last
    words would be a very thank you for such a silver screen gem

    Been looking for this for a long time. Thanks!

  6. Now this film is masterpiece if not the best non-sci-fi and non-horror film ever made.I do not like those films but this is an exception to them. I saw it the second time in a 12″ B &W CRT TV. This film is so obscure in any level of the mental state it’s astounding. So for the unbelivers of the supernatural this film is the first step into believing
    that all is in the mind… LoL!
