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.

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.

Movie Reviews (1951-2000) (50 movies items)

" The most horrific and terrible persons are the ones closest to you. The feud between Davis and Crawford behind-the-scenes have become legend but the "hate" is phenomenal even on screen - and let's not forget Victor Buono as the most patethic unemployed, sleazy "mummy boy" who can't even become the hero of the day when the chance arrives to him. Gorgeously shot and a cruel ending that leaves a lasting impact."

A classic

“Since this movie has a really solid reputation, I was really eager to check it out. Well, even though I really liked it, to be honest, I wasn't completely sold though. First of all, the whole point was obvious 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 glamorous reputation. Indeed, she tried to play the whole thing as some innocent victim but it didn't work as it made her character rather flat and boring and she was as a result completely upstaged by Davis.
