But whenever anybody from the town tries to satisfy their curiosity, Rynn’s father is never around, and it seems as if the girl is all alone. Rynn’s resourcefulness is put to the test as several people try to find out what she might be hiding, including the snobby landlady and her sleazy son.
Plot: Quiet, withdrawn 13-year-old Rynn Jacobs lives peacefully in her home in a New England beach town. Whenever the prying landlady inquires after Rynn’s father, she politely claims that he’s in the city on business. But when the landlady’s creepy and increasingly persistent son, Frank, won’t leave Rynn alone, she teams up with kindly neighbor boy Mario to maintain the dark family secret that she’s been keeping to herself.

DARJEELING OR EARL GREY???
Unique suspense film made in Canada in the mid-1970s. It’s a shame that no one has ever really noticed this little film. Well, TBS sure did and I first watched it on there in 1987 or 1988. Since, I have found it in a couple of video stores and eventually taped it off of TBS in 1990 or 1991. Nonetheless, it is a truly wonderful thriller featuring a spectacular performance from a young, gifted Foster. Sheen and Smith are quite nasty as her enemies, and Shuman and Jacoby are good as her friends. Altogether, a remarkable suspense film that has not received the praise it deserves.
Still Packs a Wallop
I first watched this on TV when I was around 6 years old. All I remembered was a little girl killing people and a bad lady’s head getting whumped by a cellar door. What surprised me most about watching it as an adult is Rynn’s sexuality and how it was played so matter-of-factly. She’s a 13-year-old girl forced to grow up too fast and discovering her own sexuality while becoming the object of creepy pedophile Martin Sheen’s affections.
Speaking of Sheen – he’s wonderful here as a first-class psycho creep. Too many viewings of the West Wing, where Sheen is a benevolent and often doddering character made me forget he used to know how to act.
The movie itself is quite good and holds up well. Rynn is given depth: she doesn’t kill for amusement, but to survive as her father instructed her. The scene where Sheen kills the hamster is incredibly vile and there’s a nasty undercurrent throughout the whole move. I do wish the ending had been better but I loved it and was really glad I could watch it again as a grownup.
