... a real cult item in the film noir filmography, weird and lurid and kitschy, but fascinating all the same.

Parallax View

The movie is discreet by modern standards, but 'Screaming Mimi' has so much sex on the brain the characters almost leak.

Audience Reviews for Screaming Mimi

½

Hooty low budget affair isn't too hard to figure out but has the attractions of a stunning Anita Ekberg and one of the rare appearances of Gypsy Rose Lee.
