Review: One film that I saw as a kid and I remember one certain scene. I watched this many years ago online, but decided to give it another watch recently. The film fits that bizarre 1950s setting. Quaid and Hurt are good together, they have certain quirkiness about them. The film has many decent moments of suspense which the film builds on very well. Quaid’s character changes while the film progresses and he becomes more and more sinister. Can’t say much without spoilers, let’s just say there are disturbing moments with food. Very weird.
