Shock Corridor

Shock Corridor ★★★★

A provocative and stylish noir inspired film that uses some jarring editing techniques (cutting abruptly, switching to color from B&W) and yet it serves the lurid story. The lighting keying in on the brooding silhouettes added that needed eeriness in the mental hospital setting. The story was mysterious throughout and worked up to a thrilling conclusion. Great find from back in the day.
