Joan Crawford/William Castle 1960-something. I enjoyed it for what it was. One of Castle's better movies.

It was slightly above average...Crawford wasn't bad as she underplayed the role rather than going the hammy Bette Davis route. It had its moments (namely the axe murder sequences) but the pacing was off, it was wayyy too talky & the supporting players weren't interesting in the least bit. One of those "coulda been a contender" movies. Not the best of the Crazy Mama subgenre (SWEET CHARLOTTE & BABY JANE taking top honors) but def. not the worst. So I guess I'm somewhere in the middle on this one.

I caught Strait-Jacket on TCM a few nights ago. A solid pot boiler. I honestly didn't see the ending coming, so that was a nice surprise. Worth a Netflix rental.

If you liked this, I highly recommend another William Castle film, Homicidal.
