Psycho-Biddies, Hagsploitation, or Grande Dame Guignol — call ’em whatever you like, but after the financial success of the rancorous onscreen/off-screen antics of Crawford and Davis in Whatever Happened to Baby Jane a new Hollywood cottage industry was born, where an aging ingenue is tossed to the wolves in some over-cooked and warped psychological thriller — with plenty of available scenery to sink their teeth into. And as far as they go, this one is actually pretty good with a rock-solid performances by de Havilland as our trapped spinster and Caan, making his big screen debut, as the lead psycho, that all culminates in a truly ghoulish ending (that the ads kinda give away.)
