Critic Reviews for Fright
more psychological melodrama than slasher.. Fright is a piece of history soon forgotten.
Audience Reviews for Fright
FRIGHT is a typical example of early 70s British horror. A girl alone. A big country house. A secret. Spooky first half held together by the always game and slutty Susan George. Then the reveal and struggle goes on for another 45 minutes. Far too long but always fun to watch George who starred in some true classics including STRAW DOGS, DIRTY MARY CRAZY LARRY, and the absolutely heinous MANDINGO.
Susan George is Amanda, a shapely babysitter whom a couple (Honor Blackman, George Cole) hire to watch their three-year-old son. What Amanda doesn't know is that the child's birth father is a murderous nut who just escaped from a mental institution. Sounds like she may earn a generous tip before the night is through. The plot of "Fright" ("There's a killer in the house!") couldn't be more tired, but it's a well-made, well-acted film for what it is, and the script does an admirable job of finding excuses for George to run around with her sweater unbuttoned.
