1.0 out of 5 stars Nasty little film with absoloutely NO style, 22 April 2007
This review is from: Lady In A Cage [DVD] (DVD)
Psycho certainly has a lot to answer for...immediately following that film we had a lot of dark films including Whatever Happened to Baby Jane, Hush Hush Sweet Charlotte and this one. The problem is though, whilst Psycho was a cinematic masterpiece, Baby Jane and Sweet Charlotte had great storys/direction, dark humour and camp appeal...this film is totally lacking in any style. Theres no dark humour, the story is far fetched, the characters unlikable and unbelieveable and its just nasty for the sake of it with scenes of a dead dog, eye stabbings, a hobo being stabbed to death and a head crushed by a car all done in rather a graphic style simply to up the shock element. Its simply not enjoyable and why De Havilland agreed to appear in a film in which she spent most of it stuck in a lift, let alone one with such a terrible script is beyond me...its totally beneath her.

The director should hang his head in shame, the opening credits are done in such a manner to suggest he was a Hitchcock fan and was trying to emulate his work, the result though was just a nasty little film that few will enjoy.
