the DVD I saw had some skips and jumps on it at several places especially at the end. this made the ending less than scary. it was a good thriller and better than the Nick Cage movie I saw a few years ago.

Definitely not what I was expecting. Kinda cheezy, but not bad. Apparently it's achieved cult classic status to some, but I don't see myself watching this again. Britt Ekland wasn't so difficult to withstand, though. (lol)

Terrific and atmospheric Brittish horror film from 1973 with one of the most memorable finales of the genre.

DON'T DRINK THE KOOL-AID!!! I failed to see what the big deal was. An interesting sociological look at norms of a small island in Scotland, for sure. Tons of totally 70's style nudity, absolutely. Frightening... not so much. My expectations were much higher for this film.

this movie contains VERY graphic nudity. Acting is absolutely terrible. This is definitely NOT a family film.

May Morrison: "Can I do anything for you, Sergeant?" Sergeant Howie: "No, I doubt it, seeing you're all raving mad!"

Lord Summerisle: "Do sit down, Sergeant. Shocks are so much better absorbed with the knees bent."

Lord Summerisle: "I think I could turn and live with animals. They are so placid and self-contained. They do not lie awake in the dark and weep for their sins. They do not make me sick discussing their duty to God. Not one of them kneels to another or to his own kind that lived thousands of years ago. Not one of them is respectable or unhappy, all over the Earth."
