About the Movie

In Shock Corridor, the great American writer-director-producer Samuel Fuller masterfully charts the uneasy terrain between sanity and madness. Seeking a Pulitzer Prize, reporter Johnny Barrett (Peter Breck) has himself committed to a mental hospital to investigate a murder. As he closes in on the killer, insanity closes in on him. Constance Towers costars as Johnny’s coolheaded stripper girlfriend. With its startling commentary on racism and other hot-button issues in sixties America and its daring photography by Stanley Cortez, Shock Corridor has had far-reaching influence.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: This 1963 film is harsh, grotesque, and violent-and, incidentally, brilliant in a very original way. – Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader, Oct 30, 2014

Schlock Corridor....

This film has to be one of the worst I have ever seen. And that is saying a lot having seen a couple of Ed Woods' and Uwe Boll's "masterpieces". The storyline is so improbable to the point of being ridiculous. Peter Breck and Constance Towers are terrible in their roles. Is this film supposed to be taken seriously? If so, whoever does should be in that mental hospital.
