This review is from: Paranoiac [DVD]  (DVD)
I had wondered if this film would ever turn up, on TV or Video/DVD, particularly as it's a Hammer film. Well, here it is and it gets allmy votes. Beautiful scope print, and great soundtrack. The previous reviewer has done the plot (and with these Jimmy Sangster scripts you can give away too much if you aren't careful). Suffice to say that the two stars (and for heavens sake get the order right-) Janette Scott and Oliver go so far over the top they hit the moon, and quite right too - they really give their all and it all works with at least 3 genuine scares, and how often can you truthfully say that? The only disapointment is Lilianne Brousse, she looks awful and seems unhappy in her thankless role. A must for thriller/Hammer/Reed fans. Go for it.
