Featuring Sylvie Fennec, Beatrice Arnac, Daniel Emilfork
Country: France

A woman marries into a family of psychopaths, one of whom kills people with a clawed glove.

The above plot description was cobbled together from a couple of different sources, as my print of this movie is in unsubtitled French and I was not able to glean very much on my own. I would have spotted the clawed glove, and I would have figured out it was a horror movie of sorts; some of the characters look very creepy, and I felt a bit of the same way on watching this one as I did with the original THE OLD DARK HOUSE or SPIDER BABY; in fact, the patriarch of the family in this one looks a bit too much like the Sid Haig character in the latter. Odd touches are prevalent, but until I can find a print in English, I’m going to have to reserve any real judgment.
