    Also loved the soundtrack, but now I have a greater appreciation for Elmer Bernstein’s scoring, too. It was my 17 year old daughter’s first viewing.

    Opted out of watching Tetsuo: The Iron Man during the second half of the Last Drive-In double feature and went with a Samara Weaving double feature instead.

    This is a great lesson in atmospheric horror. Nice, slow building tension with mysterious happenings. Frequent moments of "did you just see that thing move?" and "Behind you, Harry Potter!!" spookiness. I jumped a few times and had goosebumps at least once. I know it was based on a stage play per other people's posts, and I'd love to see it. All in all, an excellent return of Hammer Studios.

    Alternative titles:

    - A Boy And His Dog . . . And The Devil
    - Not All Dogs Go To Heaven
    - Hansel & Gretel Go Grindhouse
    - The Blair Ditch Project

    I've got a strong feeling this is a late contender to be in my top ten horror films of 2019. Highly recommended!
