With the death of her mother, Marianne (Susan George, Straw Dogs) stands to inherit a rather substantial family fortune as soon as she turns 21. Not only is there a vast sum of money involved, there are also certain incriminating documents that her father, a corrupt judge (Leo Genn, A Lizard In A Woman's Skin), does not want getting out. And with her money-hungry half-sister chomping at the bit, will Marianne even live to see her 21st birthday?
An early outing for British blood baron Pete Walker (Frightmare, The Confessional), Die Screaming Marianne is a psychological thriller that deals with jealousy, murder, incest and explores the paranoia of being surrounded by a family that cannot be trusted.
A ruthless, murdering judge pursues a beautiful young nightclub dancer, who is about to inherit a large fortune. Amongst the documents included in her inheritance are some documents which incriminate her pursuant. Unknown to her, the man after her is her father.
