Scream of Fear
The less I say about the plot of Scream of Fear the better. In short, someone is trying to drive wheelchair-bound Penny Appleby (played by the gorgeous Susan Strasberg) insane to get at her inheritance. This Hammer Studios production has plenty of atmosphere and some eerie moments. Frequent Hammer screenwriter Jimmy Sangster (Paranoiac) creates a grim storyline that is perfectly complimented by the black and white cinematography of Douglas Slocombe. There's a whole bunch of shocks, twists and melodramatics for your evil brain. Recommended.
