OLDIE GOLDIES: Diabolique (1954)

This week's choice for Oldie Goldies is a classic of French cinema. Henri-Georges Clouzot's "Diabolique" is a creepy (especially in the leadup towards the end) Hitchcockian film that really gets under your skin. The black and white cinematography really accentuates the scariness of the dark shadows.



Classic Quote
"I saw her. I know I did."



Classic Scene
*SPOILER ALERT*"The Final Twist!"*SPOILER ALERT*

Did you know?
The film gained additional press when, only five years after its release, VĂ©ra Clouzot died of a heart attack at age 46, somewhat mirroring her character in the film, who also had heart problems.
