Example text

With this film, based on a real story, Fritz Lang introduced psychopathic killers into cinema. Aided by Peter Lorre’s unique facial features he created a tormented predator who kidnaps and murders children. Ironically, both the police and the underworld end up joining forces to destroy him. The obscure atmosphere of the setting is an innovative combination of the already classic expressionism with the new German realism in drama, although it has also been associated with the prevailing pessimism following Germany’s defeat in the Great War.

Holding the humour tone throughout, the psycho villain keeps up the haywire intensity of a relentless lunatic who persistently enjoys his victim’s suffering. • - 39 - Misery (USA, 1990) Rob Reiner An impulsive woman admires the author of a romantic character, who is killed in the story. Angry about his decision, she kidnaps the author to force him to revive the dead. This is psychological horror with scarce resources, generating however more tension than many big budget topnotch productions. It provides an authentic lesson on austerity and on successful treatment of characters.

In short: Poe at his best. • - 15 - What Ever Happened to Baby Jane? (USA, 1962) Robert Aldrich An actress is forgotten by the public and her sister becomes a star. The later is, however, bedridden as a result of a mysterious accident. Her unsuccessful sister takes care of her and enjoys tormenting her, as she is determined to blame all her own misfortunes on the sister. Although the visual resources may seem a bit naive today, the film is scarier than others with more sophisticated visuals. Bette Davis and Joan Crawford’s performances are simply flawless.
