The Little Girl Who Lives Down the Lane

The Little Girl Who Lives Down the Lane ★★★★

Jodie Foster is incredible in this, and the story is bonkers and icky, but the direction is very stagey and there are some really bizarre soundtrack cue choices. Would love to see this same material (based on a novel by a man with the unlikely Austin intersection name of Laird Koening!) treated with the camped up hyper-melodrama of Michael Winner's SCREAM FOR HELP or something even scuzzier like JULIE DARLING. Still, this is a discovery for me, thanks to Tiffany and her Twin Peaks podcast listenin'!
