A decades old folk tale surrounding a deranged murderer killing those who celebrate Valentine's Day, turns out to be true to legend when a group defies the killer's order and people start turning up dead.

On Thursday, July 30, 1964, Bette Davis was scheduled to report to Fox to record dialogue with the other cast members, but the morning of the recording she called Robert Aldrich and begged him to let her have the day off. Davis doubted her capacity to contribute much to the recording because she was so depressed at not knowing when and if the film was ever going to be finished. After speaking with Dick Zanuck, Aldrich excused Bette, and the recording was canceled. See more »

By far the best work of Bette Davis and Agnes Moorehead ever!
Being your average "on-the-go" modern teenager, you can expect that I never have time to waste on a bad movie, with school, homework, and the other neurosis of life in the new millennium. However, this is NOT a bad movie! In fact, I'd venture to say that this is the very best movie I've ever seen!!! I've got a sort of yen for the older films, especially when they involve bizarre love triangles and great musical scores, but this one tops them all! Bette Davis' and Agnes Moorehead's acting abilities are superb, and this is one of the scariest films produced, utilizing twisted, distorting camera sequences and a genuinely frightening plot progression, complete with delicious twists, turns, zig-zags, and murder sequences that'll send you plummeting off the edge of your seat!!!! A classic "whodunit" that'll thrill even the most straight-laced film critic (my six-year-old sister loves it!) So rush out now (Or stay at your computer), and get "Hush...Hush, Sweet Charlotte"! You WON'T regret it!
