Strait-Jacket

Movie: Strait-Jacket
Director: William Castle
Produced by: Columbia Pictures
Released By: Columbia Pictures
MPAA Rating: NR

In this chilling blood-tale in “Psycho” style, Robert Bloch modernizes the Lizzy Borden story. A wife literally axes her cheating husband and his lover, witnessed by her three-year-old daughter. Mom is packed off to the insane asylum for 20 years before reuniting with the daughter. From this point, the axe murders continue along a contrived plot intended to lead the audience astray until the mystery is solved. Crawford’s strong performance and the excellently constructed suspense are the best elements of the film — and the chopping saves the show when the plot tends to slow.
