Entertainment Reviews:

Entertainment Weekly - 03/10/1995
"...[Deneuve is] heart-stoppingly gorgeous....Chilly alienation." -- Rating: A
Chicago Sun-Times - 10/03/1997
"...Polanski ups the horror ante with stylish, Hitchcockian filmmaking that makes the most of shadow and nuance and is chock-full of symbolism and subtext..."
USA Today - 02/24/1995
"...An all-time chiller..."
A.V. Club - 07/22/2009
"Polanski uses all his tricks to convey Deneuve's increasing disconnect from the world, from striking a sound design that rivals that of Robert Wise's THE HAUNTING for sheer, skin-crawling unpleasantness." -- Grade: A
Total Film - 12/13/2012
"Filled with indelible images and punishing sound design, REPULSION casts a shadow over everything from ERASERHEAD to BLACK SWAN, but there's nothing quite like the real thing."

Description by

Director Roman Polanski's first English language feature is a psychological thriller which has achieved cult status over the years. The flawlessly beautiful Deneuve stars as a London manicurist repelled by sex. When her roommate-sister leaves for a vacation with her married boyfriend, she quits her job and seals herself off in the apartment. Her neurotic fixations ultimately lead to a Grand Guignol scenario of mental deterioration and multiple murders.

Plot Synopsis:

A psychological horror film shot almost entirely in a London flat, REPULSION delves into the case history of a mentally disturbed, hallucinogenic, homicidal girl repelled by sex. Good suspense and clever shocks mark this recommended film, Polanski's first English-language effort.

Plot Keywords:

Production Notes:

  • Theatrical release: October 3, 1965.
  • REPULSION won the Silver Bear Award at the 1965 Berlin Film Festival and was screened out of competition at the 1965 Cannes Film Festival.
  • The Coen brothers cited REPULSION and THE TENANT as having influenced their own BARTON FINK, which won the Palme D'Or at the 1991 Cannes Film Festival--the jury that year was headed by Roman Polanski.
