I was crazy about the Crawford and Davis "hag" films and I know I went to this when it came out. But I never saw it again in all these years and don't really recall anything about it except the obvious plot line. Looking forward to it.

Yep, is your Icebox running? you better go catch it! This movie scared me back in the day. Also I was arrested 4 playing on the phone back in 1960. The elderly operator supervisor tried to put me away, if it wasn't 4 the The two Police officers that took me to court,they stood up and talked to the Judge when it was going against me. They told me she was crazy,on the way home she was really going all the way. What did I do you ask yourself, well I never could sleep even though had to be at school @ 8am, after tv went off the air @ 1am, I would dial the operator up and talk with them. That's it,that's all. /
added Sun.5/15/16 Will pick this up.

The subtitles are definitely there. There is a button in the main menu to turn them on. I tried it, and they turned on as they should.
Many Thanks..............for letting me know so quickly................I shall therefore keep my order in at Amazon.........and should receive it next week when released......I am a fan of Crawford and she made some terrible films in her twilight years......I expect this movie is one of them and I saw TROG on DVD last week...........it is so awful that after a time it becomes enjoyable to watch and every word she spoke in the film she read off queue boards as her memory simply could not retain the lines................nevertheless she was Great Actress who is greatly missed.....

It's not that bad of a film. Some over acting but still has a couple of tense moments. You could count on William Castle to give you some entertainment that is until his remake of the OLD DARK HOUSE.

I love this film. I remember seeing it when I was a kid on TV and it scared me to death. There are some genuinely suspenseful and scary moments. Also is very entertaining and fun to watch. Joan Crawford does chew the scenery and there are some hilarious moments of unintended humor: WARNING SPOILER AHEAD.... 3... 2... 1 okay, you were warned. One hilarious moment is when she is moving in to the killer for an embrace and he stabs her. She hesitates for a moment then moves in anyway to get the kiss even though he just stabbed her!!!! Her death rattle is also hilarious when her head rolls back with a jerk and her wig almost falls off. The shower scene is a PSYCHO ripoff and funny as well as disturbing. Not only does he stab his wife after pulling her in the shower with him, but then shoves her through the glass door! A thoroughly entertaining film.

I don't know if it's saying much, but I think this is Castle's best horror film, although "horror" might be too strong a word -- "suspense" would be better. It's mildly far-fetched, but at least it conceivably could happen -- which I doubt anyone could say about "House on Haunted Hill", "The Tingler", "13 Ghosts", "Strait-Jacket", etc.

As far as Crawford's horror movies are concerned, I can say unequivocally that it's a masterpiece compared to TROG!

In this one, Crawford is good at times, such as when she yells at the kids. But, as pointed out above, her death scene is hilarious. Also, she walks around wearing a necklace that must weigh 50 pounds. Who wears such a ridiculous thing around the house?

This movie was also an example of a widescreen movie that wasn't matted in the camera. When it was shown on television in 1.33:1 ratio, you could see Ireland had on swimming trunks in the shower. So besides being a nut, he was overly modest. :)

What makes me laugh about Crawford's dialogue in this (and in many of her latter day efforts) is the way she refers to any younger woman who pursues a man as a "tramp." Both his wife and the young girl are referred to as such by her in this movie, and it's a favorite expression in some of her other films, too. And yet it's OK for an older woman to go after a younger man. That doesn't make HER a tramp.

This print looks excellent! And yes, Joan Crawford's performance is tops in perfect camp! And yes, you can see his swimsuit in the shower in this framing, too. Don't miss this fun film -- although the soundtrack sounds like it's taken from an episode of the Munsters or Bewitched.
