Masochistic Melodies

You know how they say incest causes deformed children? If "Sunset Blvd." and "Misery" were siblings that had sex, they might create this hideous mutant. An unholy amalgamation of high camp and sickening emotional abuse, it's a symphony of clashing tones, yet works. A fearlessly grotesque Bette Davis performance makes masochists out of everyone watching - appalled, yet enthralled.

Pros
A psychological thriller that remains chilling even after all these years. Features two superior performances by Davis and Crawford who 's rivalry off screen was almost as bitter. They don't make them like this anymore.

Since I'm writing a short story and since the story's main villain falls under the horror-of-personality sub-genre and since this film came highly recommended with it, I decided to download it and watch it, not expecting much I must say. 20 minutes into the film and it proves itself worthy against most of Hitchcock movies and more than 95% of the movies released from the 80's till now. The thing t... read more

Two ageing film actresses live as virtual recluses in an old Hollywood mansion. Jane Hudson, a successful child star, cares for her crippled sister Blanche, who's career in later years eclipsed that of Jane. Now the two live together, their relationship affected by simmering subconscious thoughts of mutual envy, hate and revenge.

A must see

“What Ever Happened to Baby Jane was a movie I once saw about 7 years ago, and in all honesty some of it traumatised me not just the purposefully grotesque make up but also the snarl-and-shriek chemistry between the two leads. Watching it again, the film maintains its chilling and shocking values, but there is also under the surface a sadness, compassion and campiness(in a good way) that I didn't notice as much previously.What Ever Happened to Baby Jane is essentially a must see movie. The production values are superb, with beautiful yet atmospheric cinematography, well-tailored costumes, well-constructed/chosen sets/scenery and above all the grotesque yet brilliant make-up. The music never detracts from the atmosphere which is resolutely chilling albeit with moments of pathos as seen Davis” read more

" Director: Robert Aldrich His 13th movie My 3rd movie watched from the director This is an effective movie about two very unique sisters and their crazy relationship. It's depressing, scary, and quite entertaining. Crawford and Davis pulled off performances that will go in both their Top Fives for me. I loved the ending especially. Melodramatic? Sure, but it is the best kind of melodrama offered in the late 50s and early 60s. Added to Lists: It's Not Easy Being Sisters Best Performance"

" Notes: Even though I really liked it, to be honest, I wasn't completely sold though. First of all, the whole point was obviously to see two huge acting icons, Joan Crawford and Better Davis, playing some sisters and the fact that they apparently hated each other in real life made the whole thing even more spellbinding to watch. However, even though Davis took some major risks and gave an outstanding performance, Crawford played the whole thing way too safe constantly trying to protect her glam"
