An enjoyable and subversive parody on both B-film horror stories from the 1950s and mental health caregivers by legendary French director Jean Renoir.

By stressing the universal elements of Stevenson's story, Renoir eradicates the creakiness of the plot, spinning the tale into something that still feels relevant.

The last half an hour is brilliant. Unfortunately what comes before it is rather dull.

Not one of Renoir's best, but just looking at Jean-Louis Barrault's double performance it is enough!
