SHOCK CORRIDOR (US, 1963)

Post by Wallace on Mon Mar 07, 2016 1:27 am

Quite disturbing movie (for this early period).
Journalist wishing to win the Pulitzer prize fakes insanity so as to get on the inside of a state asylum and crack the case of murder.
By the time he finally gets the truth from one of the (rarely lucid)  looney inmates, he himself has turned insane.

Totally gratuitous  (unnecessary to the plot) is that the journo's girlfriend is a stripper. Also, its a men's ward but  (naturally) there is adjacent womens 9naturally) NYMPHOMANIAC ward which (naturally ) has easy access to the male inmates.
The Jew that slapped this together was thinking: "All men. Hmmm...women are not going to be watching this. Also, hey! I needs this stripper and nympho angle to keep up the  interest of the male audience. righto.  Damn but  I'm smart."


Tedious in places because it is being stressed how the same thoughts go on in the loony's heads over and over and over and over and over....
