    This was way, way better than it had any right to be. Such a classic Eighties experience.

    This film was one of the most disgusting and gruesome films I have ever seen. Kind of the Thing in redneck county. It was great. Weirdly, it's directed by James Gunn, and I just started reading a book by the science fiction writer James Gunn. Not related.

    I think loving this film or learning to love it is a sign you've evolved to a higher form of film viewer - and human being.

    Troubled young girl is sent to the country to help her recuperate. Let the healing begin! A beautiful variation on that theme. Story reminds me of Tom's Midnight Garden by Phillipa Pearce, though this one was originally written by Joan Robinson and set in the English fens. I watched the dub. Geena Davis excels in a small role as the auntie/mother. The scene where the girl Anne finally calls her 'mother' is just the best. It's so subtle, almost throwaway,but boy it works. What a swansong for Ghibli!
