GASLIGHTING AND TORMENTING: FROM HITCH TO THE LOVE WITCH
Double Feature!
ROSEMARY’S BABY / DIABOLIQUE

Etheria Film Night co-founder Heidi Honeycutt has more to say about our "Gaslighting and Tormenting" series here.

ROSEMARY’S BABY
1968, Paramount, 136 min, USA, Dir: Roman Polanski

A young New York couple (Mia Farrow and John Cassavetes) move into a new apartment building, where they’re quickly befriended by lovable Ruth Gordon and husband Sidney Blackmer. All is not as it seems, though, and Farrow soon comes to suspect that her neighbors have truly sinister plans in store for her and her unborn baby. This eerie supernatural thriller builds shivery atmosphere through each successive scene, right up until the shattering climax.


DIABOLIQUE
1955, Janus Films, 110 min, France, Dir: Henri-Georges Clouzot

One of the greatest psychological thrillers ever made, DIABOLIQUE focuses on the browbeaten wife (Vera Clouzot) of a brutal schoolmaster and his tough-as-nails mistress (Simone Signoret) as they team up to murder their mutual tormentor. But that’s only the beginning of this edge-of-your-seat affair, a twisting, turning shocker that still holds up today as one of the all-time classics of suspense. Legend has it that Clouzot beat Hitchcock to the punch by only an hour in sewing up rights to the original novel by Pierre Boileau. With sardonic Charles Vanel as the poker-faced inspector. In French with English subtitles.
