A good movie

Honestly, I wasn't sure what to expect from this flick but since I'm a huge fan of Alfred Hitchcock, I was really eager to check it out. At first, I thought it was one of his silent features and I was quite surprised to hear some dialogs within the first 10 minutes. Apparently, this flick was not as old as I thought. Anyway, even though Alfred Hitchcock was rather dismissive about this movie (apparently, he didn’t want to make it at all but his studio more or less forced him), I actually enjoyed the damned thing. Indeed, it is a rather fun and well made thriller with some really nice mood, definitely Hitchcock’s specialty. To be honest, not all the shots and scenes were great, some of them were rather awkward and weak but there were many impressive little scenes with a great play on the shadows. Furthermore, even though most of the movie was pretty cheap-ass, taking place only in one empty house with some obscure characters (it didn’t bother me at all, in the contrary), in the last act, Hitchcock gave it all with one massive ambitious chase involving a train and a bus. Seriously, it came a bit from nowhere but it was actually pretty well done and quite impressive. To conclude, even though it is nothing really amazing, I thought it was a pretty good thriller and it is definitely worth a look, especially if you like the genre.

7/10
