Mill of the Stone Women: 31 Days of Horror

      6 Comments on Mill of the Stone Women: 31 Days of Horror

These images linger and fester just beneath the surface even when they’re not on screen. The psychological horror of Mill of the Stone Women isn’t easily put into words — but it is effective, often more so than the Hammer films which it is clearly emulating.
