When Kelly first arrives to town, she walks past a theatre, and Fuller takes the chance to promote his own 'Shock corridor' as if being projected there. However, the action takes place in August 12th 1963, whereas the movie wouldn't be released till September 11th. See more »

I just had to comment on this movie to give another view to the only other review that's here for this movie at the time. This movie was made in 1964 and thus should be judged according to its time. I thought the movie was excellent in the fact that it took alot of chances for 1964. It dealt with prostitution and child molestation in a very real way. The cinematography was very good for a picture of its time. The lighting on some of the scenes was absolutely erie and sometimes very emotional. I think in todays world of movie making the art of lighting has been lost or at least severely under developed. This movie is well worth seeing if you can find it.
