Introduced by Bobcat Goldthwait!
To precede his horror debut, Willow Creek, we asked Bobcat Goldthwait to select a movie that freaked him out as a child. He chose this vintage Hammer psychodrama—and we're sure glad he did! Exquisite direction by Seth Holt and and outstandingly chilling late-career performance by Bette Davis in the title role guide this story of a young boy (William Dix) who returns home after being institutionalized for two years upon receiving the blame for the drowning death of his little sister. Placed under the care of his devoted nanny, he is soon being accused of also trying to poison his mother. But is it the precocious kid or his caregiver who is actually to blame?
