This wicked gothic drama fuses an ageing Southern belle, a buried family secret and the sinister hum of small-town gossip with the rich black-and-white tones of Joseph F. Biroc’s cinematography. Aldrich’s follow up to What Ever Happened to Baby Jane? is a Grand Guignol vehicle that transports Bette Davis to the macabre splendour of a crumbling plantation house in Louisiana. This baroque psychological thriller is spiced up with a stellar supporting cast including Olivia de Havilland, Joseph Cotten, Agnes Moorehead, Cecil Kellaway, Bruce Dern and Mary Astor.
