No Friends? Inconceivable! Log in to see what your friends have to say.
One of the best of Hammer's psychological thrillers, mainly thanks to Richard Matheson's ingenious and terrifying script.
The last time Miss Bankhead appeared in a film was in the 1953 Main Street to Broadway. Although she towers above the cast and story, her present effort adds little to her record.
Throw-away Tallulah Bankhead vehicle is a curiosity at best.
Magnificent scenery chewing from Tallulah in a pretty good thriller with smart direction.
Has tremendous tension, especially for a film that sticks close to its formal kidnapping plot.
