Sorry, Wrong Number Review


Good
Barbara Stanwyck stars in this classic noir of a bedridden woman with a heart condition who discovers a murder plot during an errant phone call. Imagine her surprise when she turns out to be the potential victim! Rather straigtforward for a "mystery," but notable in that virtually every scene involves a phone call (Sorry, Wrong Number was originally a radio play). A precursor to the far better Rear Window, but noir has seen better days.

I Saw What You Did Review


Very Good
William Castle pulled out all the stops for I Saw What You Did, an effective -- if not entirely "scary" -- thriller based on a timeless idea: What if you randomly crank-called a guy and said "I saw what you did" when her really did just murder his wife? It's a hokey version of Rear Window, complete with all of Castle's usual parlor tricks. This is one terror tale that is strangely still suitable for all ages. Lots of fun.

Strait-Jacket Review


Excellent
One of William Castle and Joan Crawford's respective greats, this campy horror classic isn't just a showpiece for Crawford's maniacal performance, it's also genuinely scary. She's just out of the loonie bin after serving 20 years for murdering her husband and his lover (oops, the kid was watching). She returns home to live with her daughter (Diane Baker), and the body count swiftly resumes again. Harrowing, with a fun twist at the end.
