This is a nice-looking black and white film where a female care-taker goes insane, kills someone, then jumps off the roof. It's very clear that the director was looking at Polanski movies like Repulsion and The Tenant for this. The problem is that both of those movies are much, much, much, much better than this.

So... I got the feeling that the main actress couldn't really deliver dialogue or something because most of the movie is silent and when she does talk to people, the language is stilted and poorly delivered. Even Sean Young's cameo was pretty cringe-worthy. Mostly, this movie relies on inserted frames accompanied by really shrill and loud music cues. When the gore does start (which looks great in black and white), the music ruined it for me. And by that time I was completely disconnected, counting the speakers mounted to the auditorium walls and studying the film reels used in the lighting fixtures because that was more interesting to me than what was on screen.

This was bad. I really didn't like it. It was a long goddamn 78 minutes.
