    Worth watching for the beautifully crafted opening shot alone, this film also features some truly eerie sequences, particularly those involving the chilling character of "Mrs. Hammond." Davis is terrific as usual. 8 years 8 months ago

    Venetian blinds and jalousies! A lighting director's wet dream. Solid, if melodramatic, noir. 6 years 4 months ago
