Good movie. The whole scene where she dances naked to "call" him into her room had me sitting there with my mouth open! I didn't know whether to laugh or cheer!! The poor guy was sweating against the wall!
It looked like the girls dancing around the fire was blurred out. And my, my the 70's outfits! Polyester heaven. I liked the main character, the cop. He was cool beanz.

The Nicholas Cage version does it no justice...don't even waste your time on that crap.

I liked the cop character, too. Then again, I've liked every performance the always-reliable Edward Woodward gave, whether it was here, Breaker Morant, King David and even in his not-bad '80s TV series The Equalizer:

Stephen King lists this as one of his favorite horror movies in his book Dance Macabre. As a result, I sought it out and was glad I did. It's still a great watch.
