This is an early movie relying on psychological horror. Some parts are nearly David LYNCH-esque. It is almost silent, save for a few voiceovers and special effects - there are no dialogues. The musical theme would have been more appropriate for a ghost movie, though.

A pretty bold and enterprising film for 1955. John Parker tries to craft a twisted nightmare world for his schizophrenic lead but it's debatable how successful he was, depending on who you ask. Even in its slightly longer un-narrated version it's still rife with goofy characterizations and pseudo-Bergman imagery. That said, it still has a distinct earnest charm that's hard to deny. And the lean runtime perfectly facilitates the film's meager subject matter.

(saw this gem on early AM cable) "Misty" would have had a real romp with this film.

I can see the merits of an original director's cut on this one. McMahon's melodramatic, CORN-BALL, narrative dialog was just what it needed to ruin the intense noirish camera work.

The musical score winds up being the real horror. oy! (rim shot)
