A very worthy representative of its genre – a mystical thriller-detective. The most interesting thing is that in the later works, in ‘The Ring’, for example, you can vividly trace echoes of this film.
Although look – ‘The Ranger’ (for the translation of the title, as always a huge thanks to our distributors), was created back in 1980, while Suzuki wrote his book in 1989. So the question of borrowing is more than appropriate. In fact, it seems that this rather classic representative of the genre has gradually been reduced to separate images, wandering from film to film.
The same ball rolling down the stairs and reappearing even after being thrown into the river. Remind me again how many times something like that has happened?
So ‘The Runaway’ is a completely inappropriate title even for its meaning, a prime example of a classic ghost horror movie. There’s an old house with dark secrets, and a ghost, craving revenge, and wanting to reveal the truth of his death to the new tenant, and a well at the old family ranch, where the haunted soul resides.
Everything is as it should be.
In short, this is one of the film models, on the basis of which, obviously, many very worthy representatives of the genre were made in the future.
