Well it's definitely not a film for everyone, there is a lot of gore, but the imagery in this film is so unique and scary it will haunt you for awhile.
The movie follows Susan (Jessica Harper) an American girl whose talents have brought her to a European ballet school. She soon discovers that there is something strange going on and is haunted by strange happenings. I won't give much away but the strange happenings are tied to the school in someway.
There is a lot of stomach turning scenes in this movie that will get under your skin. Yet, what makes this movie so interesting is it's ability to merge an art house picture with a slaughter movie.
The bad thing about the film is its script. It's hard to follow in some places and others it just doesn't make any sense. So your brain can't comprehend what's going on but your eyes are going to be treated to some strange, gory and unique images.
This is NOT a film for everyone, if you are not a regular horror movie watcher then I would watch something else on my lists. If you are a die hard horror fan or just a fan of horror then, if you haven't already, give this one a try.
