Critic Reviews for Die! Die! My Darling!

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (2)

One of the best of Hammer's psychological thrillers, mainly thanks to Richard Matheson's ingenious and terrifying script.

The last time Miss Bankhead appeared in a film was in the 1953 Main Street to Broadway. Although she towers above the cast and story, her present effort adds little to her record.

Bankhead is superbly cast and performs far above par.

Throw-away Tallulah Bankhead vehicle is a curiosity at best.

May 31, 2005 | Rating: 1/5

Magnificent scenery chewing from Tallulah in a pretty good thriller with smart direction.

May 30, 2004 | Rating: 4/5

A piece of noisy fluff.

Audience Reviews for Die! Die! My Darling!

I found this movie to be quite good. Bankhead playing a crazy, religious zealot imprisoning and torturing strong-willed Powers equals entertaining. They both played their roles so well, that it almost felt like watching a frightening documentary.

I really enjoyed this crazy thriller, it was intense, and the actors are good. I highly recommend it.

Well-acted, but relentlessly lurid, unpleasant and simply no fun to watch. A sense of humor is crucially lacking. Stephanie Powers sure was a beauty, though. Donald Sutherland's "Igor"-type role is rather embarrassing, given his subsequent achievements.
