Movie Info

In this mystery-thriller based on a novel by Ruth Rendell, Eunice (Rita Tushingham, wife of director Ousama Rawi) is a housekeeper who gets a job working for an older doctor and his wife in the U.S. Eunice is super-sensitive, rather homely, and illiterate. But she makes friends with a religious fanatic (Jackie Burroughs) who is quite willing to go along with whatever she has in mind. When a murder occurs, could Eunice and her good buddy be a bit more disturbed than first assumed?

Audience Reviews for The Housekeeper

½

Creepy film, not much of a budget, but it does a decent job with what it got. Better known as "A Judgement in Stone". Rita Tushingham rises well above the material, she is fine in her role. A middle of the road picture, equally good and poor.
