    Wow, intense! One of the most captivating psychological thrillers I've seen. Magnificent performances from the two leading ladies. 6 years 3 months ago

    Bette Davis's excellent performance made this film so great and entertaining. 8 years 10 months ago

    Magnificent! If Norma Desmond and Annie Wilkes were put together, this is what you'd end up more or less. Bette Davis was just fantastic. The bold steps taken with the makeup, clothing etc. It's very refreshing to see a Classic Hollywood-era leading lady go so far out of her element and portray something completely different.

    I'm very taken aback by the boldness of the movie. I have more to say but words fail me at the moment.
