The Spiral Staircase
Rated
The Gothic mansion shrouded in the night and lashed by furious gusts, the elderly invalid, her mind a cavern of sinister secrets, asleep in the grand bedroom; the terrified mute servant girl moving through the shadowy corridors and the twisting staircases, hearing in every crackle, every scuring noise, a premonition of horror; and, somewhere in the night, a psychotic killer who strikes without warning, deadly, implacable, consumed with bloodlust, a killer whose targets are young women, who believes that the maimed, the halt and the "defective" should be done away with. Now, it is the darkest hour of the night; now the wind screams with a redoubled fury; now the candles gutter and blink, and what is that creaking slow footstep? There it is: closer and closer now, treading calmly and steadily up the spiral staircase..Robert Slodmak's famous melodrama, drenched in Teutonic atmosphere, is the paradigmatic lady-in-distress thriller. Try not to see it alone at night, particularity if the weather is bad...
