A unique film in many ways. It ratchets up the tension slowly and effectively, building towards what seems to be an inevitable blood bath, but instead goes out on a bleak, very effective whimper. The exterior, snowscape cinematography is absolutely gorgeous. The performance are solid all around, but Burl Ives is the standout. Great stuff.
