When Celia (Joan Bennett, Scarlet Street ) marries architect Mark Lamphere (Michael Redgrave, The Lady Vanishes ) after a whirlwind romance, life seems blissful - but all is not as it appears. Her husband's mansion contains re-creations of rooms in which infamous murders took place and his previous wife died in strange circumstances. Is the young bride's imagination overactive, or do the opulent walls hide a sinister secret - and why is one room always kept locked?
Fritz Lang's atmospheric romantic thriller is now available for the first time in a definitive, remastered edition featuring a collector's booklet with film notes and specially-commissioned articles, an extensive stills and poster gallery and rare on-set photographs.
Includes English subtitles for the hard of hearing.

An enjoyable, well-acted, and wonderfully designed load of nonsense based loosely around the theme of Bluebeard. The absurdity of the ending is not well handled but overall the film is an extraordinary camp classic where the trappings of the gothic novel and the psychiatrists couch combine in an attempt to shock but end up provoking more laughs than chills. The disc is however well coded and looks a million $. Redgrave chews the furniture spectacularly (if unconvincingly) the heroine behaves in an totally unbelievable manner, the music swells and the villain gets his or her just punishment! But "Rebecca" or "Spellbound" this ain't although one can understand it's cult status as you can barely believe your eyes ( or ears!) at some of the "goings on". A fascinating failure of grotesquely fascinating proportions!
What lies in room no.7? It is permanently locked and becomes Celia's object of curiosity. Also in the house are 3 slightly spooky other characters - Redgrave's sister Caroline (Anne Revere), his son David (Mark Dennis) from a previous marriage and his secretary Miss Robey (Barbara O'Neil). Its a good film, but I think if I was a woman I would have left him pretty early on in the relationship!
While I could see where the film was heading, the actual ending is not what I expected. It's a spookily filmed story and it's quite memorable.
After a whirlwind romance, Celia Barrett (Bennett) marries Mark Lamphere (Redgrave) but finds once the honeymoon is over his behaviour becomes quite odd...
A troubled production and troubling reactions to it by the critics and Lang himself! Secret Beyond the Door is very much in the divisive half of Lang's filmic output. Taking its lead from classic era Hollywood's keen interest with all things Freudian, and doffing its cap towards a number of "women in peril at home" films of the 1940s, it's a picture that's hardly original. Yet in spite of some weaknesses in the screenplay that revolve around the psychological troubles of Mark Lamphere, this is still a fascinating and suspenseful picture.
I married a stranger.
Draped in Gothic overtones and astonishingly beautiful into the bargain, it's unmistakably a Lang film. His ire towards the cast and studio, where he was usurped in the cutting room and with choice of cinematographer, led Lang to be very dismissive towards the piece. However, it contains all that's good about the great director. Scenes such as the opening involving a paper boat on ripples of water, or a sequence that sees Mark dream he is in a courtroom full of faceless jurors, these are indelible images. Then there's the lighting techniques used around the moody Lamphere mansion that are simply stunning, with Cortez (The Night of the Hunter) photographing with atmospheric clarity.
