After Carpenter and De Palma, it may seem a little dated; yet Edwards' classical feel for pure cinema remains unalloyed.
This stylish noir thriller is one of Blak Edwards' best films and one of the genre's highlights, well acted by Lee Remick, exquisitely shot by Philip Lathrop, and moodily composed by Henry Mancini, who contributes a great jazz score
One of director Blake Edwards' best w/terrific Mancini score.
Superior thriller from before Edwards' typecasting as a comedy specialist.
Blake Edwards' taut-suspense classic about a beautiful bank clerk, played wonderfully by Lee Remick who is terrorized by a murderous asthmatic-voiced extortionist, chilling played by Ross Martin, that is planing to use her to steal a $100,000 from the bank where she works. An FBI agent, superbly played by Glenn Ford, that Remick managed to contact is now aiding her in trying to apprehended the psychotic Martin who has threaten to kill her and her young sister. Exceptional direction by Edwards, who gives his thriller some serious edge-of-your-seat moments. Solid, convincing supporting performances by Stefanie Powers, Roy Poole, Ned Glass, and Aita Loo. Glorious black & white cinematography by Phillip H. Lathrop, and a great Henry Manicini score. A realistic and compelling motion picture thriller. Highly Recommended.
like a bridge between film noir detective stories and the modern thriller, this really was an experiment on the part of blake edwards, much better known for his light comedies. made immediately after the charming if over-rated breakfast at tiffany's, the film pioneered techniques used to great effect by depalma among others in the 80's. it looks a little dated now but this is a solid and influential piece of work
Unfortunately, Experiment in Terror was one of those pesky "those who don't remember the past are condemned to repeat it" moments for me when I let high expectations ruin this movie for me. I heard David Lynch's name thrown around a lot when being told and reading about this movie. That alone wrote Experiment in Terror's death certificate. Its one of the very last noir movies so it's one of the last of its kind from that era. It starts off with sharp imagery and a score to go nuts over by Henry Mancini. It started great, started nodding off toward the middle, then eventually started snoring pretty damn loud be the end. Its definitely not bad and I can see even a small influence it had on Lynch, but its definitely not worth busting your balls over to get a copy of. Impress a film teacher with it, I don't know.
