USA 1964
Dir William Castle
With Joan Crawford, Diane Baker, Leif Erickson

This psychological horror (produced and directed by the king of gimmicks, William Castle) was Crawford’s ‘psycho-biddy’ follow-up to What Ever Happened to Baby Jane? It earned the ageing star her last Academy Award nomination. She plays axe-murderer Lucy Harbin, recently released from the psychiatric hospital after being locked up for two decades. Lucy attempts to rebuild her life with her now-adult daughter (Baker), but a series of brutal axe murders threatens her town and her fragile grip on sanity.

These screenings will now be Digital rather than 35mm as advertised in the print Guide.
