Directed by Mark Robson
We are in a string of pretty crappy but enjoyable RKO horror films. These aren't quite as good as Universal horrors way back in the early 30s but they are fun. There are so many artsy movies on the list that I enjoy some good old fashioned popcorn movies (a new version of the list has The Hangover which I think is awesome).
This movie is about a timid girl who goes to the big city to search for her crazy sister (the sister is pictured above in the weirdest hairstyle known to mankind). Some twists, lesbians, and satanic followers ensue.
Like I said, this movie is simply not well made. The cuts between shots are too quick, the acting is only okay, and the plot is rather forgettable. There is, however, this cool scene where the leading lady is taking a shower and a menacing woman comes in with a dire warning and all we see is her silhouette. I am sure Hitchcock modeled the infamous shower scene from this movie.
Pretty fun, only around an hour long, and utterly forgettable.
The set is from The Magnificent Ambersons.
The actor who played Jason Hoag was killed shortly after this film came out in WWII.
