Description

Les Diaboliques is a classic suspense film that sets the standard rarely reached by contemporary movies. A blueprint for Psycho among others, this film has many imitators but few peers.
A tyrant schoolteacher - Delasalle (Paul Meurisse) in a seedy boarding school has both his wife (Vera Clouzot) and his mistress (Simone Signoret) looking for a way out as he maltreats them both. They decide to work together to murder their tormentor.
The two women drown Delasalle in the bath then dump the body in a swimming pool. When the pool is drained and no body found they start to worry. When his suit is returned, cleaned, they start to panic.
Is he alive? Does someone else know? A spiral of perfectly crafted tension hurtles you to an unparalleled conclusion and an ending you will never forget!
Both frightening and intoxicating in equal measures this film stands the test of time and remains a classic.

An amazing French cinema classic, lovingly presented by Arrow with a restored picture quality and a handful of great extras, this is a must for true lovers of historical horror cinema. Zavvi have this at a super cheap price, I couldn't pass on it, and neither should you!

This was a blind buy for me. I'd heard a little of the reputation of this French film, so decided to chance it... glad that I did. Tremendous craftsmanship in this movie. Superb direction, cinematography and acting. The script is really a work of art and it's easy to see that many of its elements have been copied and reworked into later, even recent, blockbuster thrillers. The transfer to Blu-ray is very good. Little evidence of print damage and wonderful contrast, which is so important in a film such as this with many darkly lit moody passages. Some informative extras, but the film itself is the revelation. Highly recommended for lovers of taut thrillers, Hitchcock, noir or simply the craft of filmmaking.

Superlative thriller

It's no surprise to learn that Hitchcock was heavily influenced by Clouzot's astonishing black-and-white masterpiece: Psycho has a central character bumped off early too, plus a merciless camera investigating the pathology of psychosis. One of the key differences here is how sparingly Clouzot uses music. Everything is cool and - especially at the climax - breathtakingly shocking. Here at last it's delivered in a pristine print with numerous fascinating extras. The less you know about Les Diaboliques the better. Just watch it.
