    Oh my Goddess! Très genial. Inextricable!

    Mme. Polanski schools a Polanski look-alike.

    Combining Euripides with Sacher-Masoch would not have occurred to me, but it is now obviously correct.

    ★★★

    I just saw the director's working cut of this film back when it was to be named 'The Ancestor'. Apparently Dan O'Bannon did not have creative control over the theatrical release. The working cut, although lacking music and some special effects, seemed like a smart adaptation of H. P. Lovecraft's The Case of Charles Dexter Ward.
