Robert Aldrich's film to continually defy expectations.

Aldrich piles on a series of scream-in-the-night shocks, the better to batten a script strikingly short of sneakier surprises.
August 3, 2012
This well executed and well acted Gothic horror is Aldrich's follow-up to What Ever Happened to Baby Jane? which also starred Bette Davis.

Bette Davis in her late, creepy mode...and still effective.
October 10, 2006
Davis' near-crazed performance being over-the-top but satisfying in a campy way.
June 24, 2006
Over the top, of course, and not a lot to it, but it's efficiently directed, beautifully shot (Joseph Biroc), and contains enough scary sequences amid the brooding, tense atmosphere.

Davis has some authentic, poignant moments, before all hell breaks loose.

Director Aldrich's work on Baby Jane was already a study in hysteria, and his style for Charlotte is, if anything, even more ornate.

If it's Grand Guignol you're after, here's where you'll find it.
May 22, 2005
This film is bonkers ... heady Southern Gothic decadence, histrionics from just about everyone involved, and severed body parts that pop up at the most inopportune times.
May 9, 2005
So calculated and coldly carpentered is the tale of murder, mayhem and deceit that Mr. Aldrich stages in this mansion that it soon appears grossly contrived, purposely sadistic and brutally sickening.
July 27, 2004
Smothered in Spanish moss, creakily derivative of Baby Jane, this one proves you can't borrow from the same well twice.

Essentially: well-shot schlock.
