Ozus' World Movie Reviews
Rating: 3/5 -- Not bad creepy psychodrama from schlockster William Castle.
This film from legendary gimmick artist William Castle (THE TINGLER) and writer Robert Bloch (PSYCHO) focuses on people's dreams. The first segment of the film is a wild hallucinatory ride through dream imagery that would make Salvador Dali nod in approval. Then the story starts: Barbara Stanwyck stars as Irene, a woman who's wealthy, jealous, and blind husband (Hayden Rorke) is convinced she has been cheating on him, in her dreams. Before he can find out the name of her dream lover he dies in a lab explosion--or does he' At night his corpse stalks her through their house, his burned face twisted in a fiendish grin, but then she wakes up, screaming. The family lawyer (Robert Taylor) thinks poor Irene just needs some more rest, but she's afraid to fall asleep. Later, her "dream" man (Lloyd Bochner) comes to her, and they get married in a bizarre wedding ceremony attended solely by mannequins. A score of harpsichord and electric guitar by Vic Mizzy keeps things bouncing as Irene walks these twisted halls of her mind. Of course, there's plenty more going on than meets the disembodied eye in this clever little mystery. Foxy Judith Meredith costars.
A wealthy widow is pursued by a man from her dreams, which leads to seduction, betrayal, and murder...complicated by a lawyer who is investigating the death of her husband.
- Composer Vic Mizzy also did the music for THE ADDAMS FAMILY TV show.
