This film has haunted me right from the start of its release in 1965, thanks to the top players, the tense plot, the effective direction by J. Lee Thompson and the music from John Dankworth. But most importantly (the play of) Samantha Eggar and the melodramatic role she plays in the film are the main reason of my lasting interest in this film. The famous bathroom scenes with her are unforgettable.
