Goofs

The bloodstains shown on the refrigerator at the beginning of the movie are in a completely different location from where they appear when it is later shown whose blood it was and how it got there. In the opening sequence, the stains are on the front of the refrigerator, whereas when they are shown being put on, the streaks go above the top of the door. See more »

a classic 70s thriller/mystery
22 January 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I am dying to see this film again but cant find it anywhere and everyone i ask about it gives me blank looks! Mommy i'm home is the opening line, and what follows has stuck in my head for 38 years! just goes to prove that this era produced some of the best entertainment around! the bloody hand print on the fridge, the mess in the kitchen, all simple stuff by todays standards but left a much bigger impression on me than some of the rubbish that passes for entertainment nowadays! I was only 6 years old when i first saw this film so i didn't really appreciate Janet Leigh's professionalism and beauty until i watched Psycho much later, i then realised the similarity between the two films! if the powers that be are reading, please release this on DVD!
