Thriller • 1940 • 1 hr 24 min
Where the term gaslight was initially popularized. Suspenseful. Worth watching.
Diana Wynyard as Bella is so meek and fragile, it breaks your heart to see the continual humiliations she suffers start to break her down.
More than 1 hour of a man making a woman think that she's crazy. It's frustrating.
I've yet to watch the remake, but I very much enjoyed this version. Anton Walbrook is absolutely mesmerising.
Be prepare to sit for 84 minutes seeing the man torturing the woman
Surprisingly difficult to watch. This is where the expression “gaslighting” comes from, btw.
Very forward thinking and explores a different level of horror. Very stilted and dated acting choices
