As science fiction, it's a little disappointing but as horror, it’s a rousing success – a shocking and disturbing gem.

"Twilight Zone" elements aside, the movie never loses sight of its twin objectives: maintain suspense and emphasize a message about the enduring, pernicious power of racism.
Works as a blend of old-fashioned melodrama and subtle satire, with a dash of director Luis Bunuel’s well-known foot fetishism added for flavor.

More interested in applying non-standard cinematic tactics to enliven the facts rather than being enslaved by them.
