“Angels don’t go to hell, only bad people do.”

Mysterious accidents and death befall a Russian imigrant family in the 30’s USA. The young boy, Niles has an evil twin-brother going a bit nuts. The only problem is that he’s dead…

A rock steady classic Hollywood production. It doesn’t have the massive impact as a couple of movies from the 70’s, but it’s still a good movie with some creepy and memorable moments. Probably a heavy influence for the movie “Goodnight Mommy”.
