Even the occasional good performance can't offset this minor dualer.
What other movie opens with Satanism in Greenwich Village, twists into urban paranoia, and climaxes with a suicide?
This is the greatest of producer Val Lewton's justly celebrated low-budget chillers.
The frame itself becomes an exotic carnivorous flower about to swallow the spectator.
Sweeps from beginning to end in a single clean, unhurried but unflagging, rush of narrative.
Endlessly gripping and endlessly fascinating.
the gauziest, maybe the most influential, surely the most underestimated, Lewton production.
Perhaps producer Val Lewton's most personal film, and certainly one of his greatest.
It is clear that the film was designed to appeal to an intelligent film-going crowd out for a thrill as well as those just looking to get the bejeezus scared out of them.
It's a very well-made psychological thriller (before such a term even existed) filled with good performances.
Creepy classic horror
a brilliant dark mystery from producer val lewton, this was director mark robson's first film. it's a rather obvious inspiration for rosemary's baby with a shower scene that looks awfully familiar as well. with a nihilistic tone and a shocking final scene, it's a wonder this film ever got made in hollywood. one of the great unseen thrillers from the golden age, starring beaver cleaver's dad and zora from planet of the apes!
The 7th Victim doesn't sound like much on paper but viewing it is an entirely different matter. It's a precursor to Rosemary's Baby, The Third Man and has has a shower scene that... well, just see it for yourself. One of Val Lewton's more impressive accomplishments. The 7th Victim also has a great cast that compliments is eerie photography very well. It gets its point across in its 71-minute running time but oddly leaves you wanting just a little bit more. It also serves as proof that Lewton never really got his due, but was way ahead of his time...
This movie is predictable and unscary, but there are some good scenes too. This movie's not bad, but it's not good either.
A young girl searches New York for her elder sister, who has fallen in with a group of devil-worshippers. This isn't top-notch Val Lewton but it's still pretty great. I think there are more scenes and more characters than the typically slender running time can adequately sustain. Consequently, although there are some lovely atmospheric touches, they tend to be rather fleeting; I would have liked to have savoured them a little while longer. The softly spoken intimidation of Kim Hunter in the shower is wonderfully sinister, in its own quiet way every bit as good as Hitchcock's famous and flashy shower scene in Psycho. A very sweet Kim Hunter makes her screen début and Jean Brooks sports one of the most striking hairstyles in B-movie history. Due in no small part to the wistful presence of Brooks, The Seventh Victim is a strange, surprisingly depressing little movie; probably not a good one to watch if you're feeling down in the dumps.
