|A difficult but rewarding slasher-cum-psychological character study.
Quiet rural woman Ingrid (Britt) maintains a relatively tranquil life...farm chores, grocery shopping, choir rehearsals.
But when a rapist/killer in a ski mask begins terrorizing the area and knifing women with scissors, Ingrid finds her name is at the top of the psycho's list.
Slowly, Ingrid's security begins to unravel...Will she be able to discern real threats from her own private nightmares?
Haunts certainly beats to a different drum but is a rather mesmerizing watch, thanks to Britt's subdued (& fragile) performance as well as the sad conclusion/revelation. Excellent flashback editing from Ingrid's childhood.
Beautiful score by Pino Donaggio.
