This is one of the creepiest movies I have ever seen, if not THE creepiest. I saw it for the first time when I was about eight, and it has scarred me for LIFE!
Everything about it creeps me out-seriously, what is not creepy about this movie? Bell towers are creepy. Hanging from a rooftop is creepy. Jimmy Stewart is creepy. Kim Novak is creepy. And this...THIS IS THE CREEPIEST THING I HAVE EVER SEEN AND PROBABLY EVER WILL SEE IN MY LIFE:
Carlotta Valdes is the single spookiest thing ever (you can imagine my initial reaction when Carlotta followed me on Twitter! I love you Carlotta, really!). And that final scene! Woah! Little Eight-Year-Old Niamhy was so terrified she started crying. Yes, that nun made me cry. Like a baby. I still feel like crying sometimes when I watch-even when I think about that scene (but I hold it in for fear of what we would call 'slegging' or 'heckling').
Did I mention that this is one of my brother's favourite movies? He thinks it is sheer brilliance! And I think it is quite brilliant too, even if it is OUT OF THE ORDINARY, EXTREMELY, UNBELIEVABLY, FATALLY CREEPY!
