The Yellow Wallpaper (Motion Picture) is an "Origins Myth"... rather than a direct adaptation of the famous Charlotte Perkins Gilman story. Drawing from the original short story and a number of Gilmans' other gothic works (The Giant Wisteria, The Unwatched Door, etc.), The Yellow Wallpaper is an original narrative of events that unfold around the actual writing of "The Yellow Wallpaper" short story. After a devastating fire, Charlotte and John rent a countryside house and attempt to start life over, though Charlotte, upon seeing visions of her deceased daughter, retreats to the house's attic and pulls away from her husband and sister.

This is a period piece filled with thousands of tiny, rich details: the creepy, chilling way the sun sets, the sense of foreboding mixed with anticipation, the ladies' dresses that look so stiff and uncomfortable that you feel faint and sweaty, too. The men have that dandy look of that time, but the dustiness settles on them just enough to show they are masking big secrets. I was surprised to see so many recognizable actors in a small independent film, and I was also surprised at how much I enjoyed this film overall. The story had a good, interesting pace. There are a couple of good jolts to keep the viewer's attention, and some neat twists throughout. It was beautifully shot, with Gothic overtones - which is a feat given that it is a horror film.
