This film is perfect in every way! I had the original VHS put out by the defunct Media and watched it almost 100 times when I was a kid, I kind of think it gave me secret information about life. I wish they would put out a soundtrack cd, I love the theme song:::
"Can you read, What's in my mind? Skullduggery! Skullduggery!...I just found a clue its all right! Yeah!"
The plot cannot really be described, maybe "Mazes and Monsters" meets "El Topo" meets "Suspira" lol but better then all 3. The convoluted plot allows you to learn the hermetic secret of Tik-Tak-Toe!
I had been emailing Anchor Bay to release this since they made available such similar masterpieces as PIN and POSSESSION, but they never responded. Well, hopefully criterion will soon put out a definitive version. Thank you Ota Richter for giving this fine gift to society!
