Paranoiac borders on camp with its over-the-top plot and stratospheric broadcasting.
Mesmo procurando recriar o impacto de Psicose, as várias reviravoltas deste filme mantém o espectador sempre surpreso, e o clima de tensão é eficaz. Infelizmente, a conclusão (ao contrário do clássico de Hitchcock) deixa um pouco a desejar.
This one is as good as any Hitchcock film out there, and unlike any other hammer film I have ever seen, No real horror here just a twisted suspense drama. All parties play an outstanding part. About a family whose youngest brother returns from the dead in real life, 6 days before estate inheritance, if I tell you anymore it will give best parts away. My first 5 star black & white film.
From what I've seen to this point, there seem to be two different types of Hammer films. You've got the colorful atmospheric gothic-styled monster movies then you've got the more drab black and white psychological suspense types. I'll openly admit to liking the former better but every once in a while I run into one that kind of questions my preference. Paranoiac didn't make me question my allegiance. Its certainly not an awful movie by any means, it just shouldn't be one of the first Hammer movies you see. Freddie Francis' direction was pretty good (the climax was particularly well done) and the acting for the most part was pretty good with Oliver Reed doing an excellent job at playing an absolute asshole. Paranoiac isn't a bad movie to have under your Hammer belt provided you've seen at least 10 with Christopher Lee and/or Peter Cushing first.
