This is the most effective movie ever made. It's about a sexually repressed woman who is left alone in her apartment for the weekend, and then suffers a series of bizarre and disturbing hallucinations. Catherine Deneuve gives a nerve-racking performance in this heart stopping movie. This is a true horror movie, with a fear that is beyond our imagination. Roman Polanski executes this movie perfectly, the music is effective, the black and white cinematography disturbing, the hallucination scenes frightening. It's disturbing as hell, and it's one of the best movies I've ever seen. 10/10.
