Movie Info

Larry (Anthony Perkins) is not someone it is wise to cross, as his wife Frances (Jill Ireland) discovers. In this English-language French melodrama/thriller, Larry uses his skills as a neurologist and brain surgeon in an attempt to manipulate a hapless amnesiac (Charles Bronson) into murdering his wife and her lover. The amnesiac was found on a beach along with the body of a dead woman, and he is already suspected of her murder--why not add another to the list?

Audience Reviews for Someone Behind the Door


A good story and actors, but the film quality is horrible. The technical side of it ruins the movie. I'd still say that if you like the actors you should check it out anyway.

I loved the story and I loved Perkins in this movie, but that's it. The film quality is extremely poor, it looks like this may have been a movie that got lost in a studio vault somewhere for years, and the distributors didn't want to take the time to edit and clean it up. The sound, editing, lighting are all terrible. Other than that, I really liked this movie.
