Review on the Run: This epic Swiss horror/mystery told the legend of a female spirit who was supernaturally summoned into a doll made out of a broom and rags, which manifested into a flesh and blood young woman. The brutish men who cast this spell assumed that she was their sex slave, ignoring that she had her own will like a regular human being. Problems proliferated as the men tried to control her. The church also passed judgement against her. From a spiritual perspective, I found it to be a fable about what happens when you disrespect the female energy no matter how it manifests. The head priest of the church in the small village where this supernatural event took place was surrounded by suspenseful, dark music whenever he entered the scene. I thought this was quite revealing since most religions project their own demonic attitudes on the feminine energy. The story was told in flashbacks and sometimes got a bit confusing, but all loose ends were wrapped up at the end. Very high production values and excellent acting made this a very watchable and engaging horror film.
