    We Have Always Lived in the Castle


    A very direct adaptation of the book (made more palatable by limiting Merrikat's VO) with some striking performances & good period set & costume design. Fans of Shirley Jackson will appreciate it on those grounds, but those new to her work will appreciate it as a very effective dreamy gothic drama. Dropping the VO made the film heavier in tone.

    Fun if unoriginal ghost-satanist story with some great imagery. I'd like to know the story behind the production because it's clear the shooting never finished.

    Fantastic. Feels like a live action version of an Ikuhara show. Plot reminiscent of The Twelfth Night. Watch at least some of the Female Prisoner Scorpion films first.
