Homicidal

Celebrated as “Castle's classic” by The Psychotronic Encyclopedia of Film, this William Castle scare show of 1961, scripted by Robb White, features Glenn Corbett, Patricia Breslin, and Jean Arless in a curious bisexual double role. The plot concerns an icy blond who pays a young bellboy to marry her, kills the justice of the peace, and then makes off with her husband to an old dark house owned by a paralyzed woman and her disturbed son. At least one decapitation and a trip to Denmark follow.
