CLOUZOT’S INFLUENTIAL SUSPENSE MASTERPIECE

Before Psycho, Peeping Tom, and Repulsion, there was Diabolique. This thriller from HENRI‑GEORGES CLOUZOT (Le corbeau, The Wages of Fear), which shocked audiences in Europe and the U.S., is the story of two women— the fragile wife and the wilful mistress of a sadistic school headmaster—who hatch a daring revenge plot. With its unprecedented narrative twists and unforgettably scary images, Diabolique is a heart-grabbing benchmark in horror filmmaking, featuring outstanding performances by SIMONE SIGNORET (Casque d’or, Army of Shadows), VERA CLOUZOT (The Wages of Fear), and PAUL MEURISSE (Le deuxième souffle, Army of Shadows).

Les Diaboliques

Another Criterion classic. Tense as you like, and still a shocker today. Add Zavvi’s skill set and everything is superb as always 👍🏻

Great Movie

Gotta love this classic. Like a French Hitchcock, Clouzot does a great movie in this story, building up the excitment to the end. So old school horror story that still is great today if one enjoy black and white movies.
