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.

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.

Two ageing film actresses live as virtual recluses in an old Hollywood mansion.

"Es una película para los que les gusta las historias insufribles. Nos centran en las hermanas Jane y Blanche Hudson, quienes fueron estrellas infantiles de Hollywood, pero con el paso del tiempo Jane fue completamente olvidada, mientras que Blanche se convirtió en una actriz de éxito. Su hermana la envidia y le provoca un accidente dejándola en cuadripléjica. Pasan los años y la Blanche tiene que vivir con su hermana con graves problemas mentales la cual la tortura física y psicológicame"

" Notes: 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 perform"
