Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: The chain of circumstances grows, violence creating violence. Once the inept, draggy start is passed, the film's pace builds with ever-growing force.
Fresh: Aldrich's direction and dynamite performances from the two old troupers make this film an experience.
Fresh: Creepy, freaky and memorably histrionic.
Fresh: It's a film that's a little slow to start and could benefit from a faster pace. But this is still essential viewing with the superb Davis in legend mode and Crawford wisely under-playing her role as the victim.
Classic lunacy & great fun.
I've loved this movie since the first time I saw it. Bette Davis is so amazing. This film is full of great lines and bizarre plot points. From rats in the basement (and for lunch), to "letters to daddy," to ice cream on the beach - If you're looking for something truly twisted and memorable, look no further.
This is a must to see classic.....Movies like this are just not made anymore. 2 legends of the silver screen.....very chilling...Do yourself a favor and watch it.
With out a doubt my 2nd favorite (yes 2nd) movie of all time. No one knew true suspense like Robert Aldrich. Today, suspense movies aren't as good as they used to be. Today they are so predictable.
