Barbara Steele is a great lead in this one. The film really managed to pull together a pretty good atmospheric horror with a somewhat twisted and creepy ending.
IT does suffer from some 1960’s flaws such as some choppy dialogue and big jars of poison labeled “Poison”. Overall though, I think this was pretty…alright.
It’s only major downside is that it’s boring. It’s not a particularly lengthy film so I kind of think this is a deal breaker in terms of something I would recommend. It’s an admirable effort for 1962 but it doesn’t withstand the test of time.
