Critic Reviews for Thirteen Women

All Critics (2)

A rarely seen, undervalued and racially provocative semi-horror film that anticipates the 'body count' movies of future decades, this is a doozy and a knockout, with Myrna Loy at her sexiest and most exotic.

Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)

It's hysterical and bigoted and just plain ruthless, almost unbelievable, and perversely fun for all that.

Audience Reviews for Thirteen Women

Silly junk, wildly dated that was one of Myrna's final villainess Eurasian roles. She looks great but is far better than the part deserves.

If you're someone who enjoys movies where women sit around and gossip and get divorces from their husbands, you'll like this movie, but if you're like me and want more from a movie look elsewhere. Overall, this movie is okay, but it's long and it gets annoying listening to the women gossip for scene after scene.

A young lady, described as 'half Hindu and half Chinese' but looks like neither, is made to feel unwelcome at her all-girl finishing school by her white classmates. Years later her classmates, through a series of chain-letters, send away to a 'swami' for their horoscopes. As fate would have it, the 'half-breed' girl now works for the swami and she devises a plan for revenge that involves hypnosis, the power of suggestion, and some poison chocolate.
