Evoking dark coming-of-age tales such as Valerie and Her Week of Wonders and the stories of Angela Carter, the stylish, sinister film draws comparisons with the cinema of Italian maestros Mario Bava and Dario Argento.

Sigl's impressive feature makes its UK premiere on Blu-ray, with a wealth of extras including interviews with members of the cast and crew, 'Making of', and two of Sigl's award-winning, unnerving short films - The Christmas Tree (1983) and Coronoia 21 (2021).
