Strange, static thriller has interesting flashback.

The film looked more like a 1950s TV show than a feature film.

Audience Reviews for Cause for Alarm

½

This is a brilliant suspense film, Young gives a fantastic performance as a wife who doesn't want to be suspected for murdering her husband. Great story, I loved it.

High strung melodrama with Loretta at a fever pitch almost the whole way through. Plays more like an extended episode from an old anthology series than a feature and a rather nonsensical one at that.
