Shock Corridor Reviews
This is a fantastic film, full of nightmarish imagery. Some films have beautiful and nice looking imagery, and this movie has the exact opposite. There are close ups with nice shadow, hallucinations, and all sorts of visual aids to show Johnny's descent into madness.
Constance Towers backs him up as his doting wife, but also has a few issues of her own. She has to pretend to be his sister and that he is in love with her, and is also a burlesque dancer who makes a few mistakes when it comes to his treatment at the facility.
Taking its time with the plot and slowly building up to its climax, Shock Corridor is a scary film even though its not a horror movie and it stretches its genre conventions for some excellent imagery and thrills.
