  1. Jacques de Villiers's rating of the film Shock Corridor

    It's sad how there's an unbreachable barrier of history separating me from Shock Corridor. Imagine mainlining this movie in 1963 and feeling all those issues, aesthetics, and emotions in your veins just explode and take shape as the decade progressed. I just wish the movie's central plotline could have been half as interesting as everything that happens around it. Though I suppose the studio system...

  2. gld48's rating of the film Shock Corridor

    schlocky as hell but fun. sam fuller always pushed the bar, he was messed up

  3. Scienceofphantoms's rating of the film Shock Corridor

    Ah, yes, the almighty Shock Corridor. There's no way it will live up to anybody's expectations. The knife has dulled, the psychedelic monuments are only half-effective, and that goddamn whispery voiceover... Anyway, sublime, scary cinematography.

  4. En Sangers Bøn's rating of the film Shock Corridor

    An original view on the mental institution, punctuated by socio-political insights. Very 60s realism. Good but not standout.

  5. Royce Jr.'s rating of the film Shock Corridor

  6. Wee Hunk's rating of the film Shock Corridor

    Absolutely hilarious. I have rarely seen something so wrong in almost every possible way. It's really about acting. His job is to act like a crazy person, but he just goes waaaaay over the top. The girlfriend is a stripper? Fuller complained the movie was not exploitation. Hah! Nice seeing Roscoe P. Coltrane.

  7. FISCHER's rating of the film Shock Corridor

    Un chef d'oeuvre incontournable ! www.cinefiches.com

  8. ginobartolomi's rating of the film Shock Corridor

    Almost had me, just a little too over the top for my taste. Peter Breck's girlish screaming was enough to send me to an insane asylum myself. Couldn't take that or much of anything else very seriously.

  9. ermete polpette's rating of the film Shock Corridor

  10. V.S. Luoma-aho's rating of the film Shock Corridor

    Much of it is hammy, dated and badly acted, but the scenes of madness remain effective. There's a Zizekian/Lynchian dynamic at work here. Whenever the film strives for reality, it's corny and stupid. Whenever it depicts fits of "madness", it gets interesting, something is happening, something takes place. Yes, maybe that is America.

  11. Il secondo maestro del revolver's rating of the film Shock Corridor

  12. HSBilly's rating of the film Shock Corridor

    "whom god wishes to destroy, he first makes mad"

  13. Alexander Dunkelberger's rating of the film Shock Corridor

    The title is apt, as the experience is akin to being electrocuted. The themes and meanings of this film are interesting: the corruption and manipulation of the media into a tool for glory, the destructive madness of the overly strong work ethic, the morality of journalism. What is most striking to me however is how the fame seeking journalist is totally oblivious to the real issues going on in the American landscape.

  14. Christopher M. Jones's rating of the film Shock Corridor

    Schlock Corridor is more like it

  15. Marc Saffar's rating of the film Shock Corridor

    Chef d'œuvre du Maître Fuller destiner à secouer, réveiller et à faire penser.

  16. Olivier Mouchel's rating of the film Shock Corridor

    Samuel Fuller renvoie l'Amérique à ses propres démons et la folie qu'elle crée elle-même. Puissant !

  17. Jean-patrice Ouvrard's rating of the film Shock Corridor

    Décevant, mal vieilli et surtout ne "parle" de la folie qu'à travers des poncifs éculés. Quant à la dénonciation des électrochocs, c'est une redite du genre. Peut-être peut on reconnaître le courage de Fuller qui porte à l'écran les revendications des droits civiques pour les noirs, ce qui en 1963 n'était pas sans compromission pour un réalisateur, juste un avant le Civil Rights Act de 1964 et le Voting Rights Act 64

  18. Henri's rating of the film Shock Corridor

    Les ficelles sont un peu grosses (la folie prévisible du héros, la dénonciation du racisme, le sacrifice de l'amour, les médecins bernés, la faiblesse de l'intrigue...) et le film a mal vieilli (du moins souffre-t-il de la comparaison avec les "Vol au dessus d'un nid de coucous" et autres "Shutter Island").

  19. Claire Rose Daguerre's rating of the film Shock Corridor

    très bon film, très juste, les acteurs sont fantastiques, une ambiance étrange...

  20. Brihaye's rating of the film Shock Corridor

    Film qui m'a surpris par son côté visionnaire et contemporain: à la fois sur le plan du contenu, du thème abordé, de la démarche du journaliste qui se veut au plus proche de l'objet d'étude jusqu'à s'y confondre; à la fois sur le plan formel, notamment par le recours à la voix-off. Néanmoins le pari de la folie que fait le réalisateur n'est tenu que partiellement, et l'acteur joue la folie à défaut de la vivre.

  21. James Mackin's rating of the film Shock Corridor

    This blew my mind the first time I watched it, one of the best usages of mixing black and white and colour in cinema.

  22. Christophe's rating of the film Shock Corridor

    Tout est annoncé, la surprise ne sera pas là et la galerie de personnages ne livre pas assez de profondeurs à ce récit attendu, il n'en reste pas moins une bonne intention.

  23. Victor LVD's rating of the film Shock Corridor

  24. cyrikelly's rating of the film Shock Corridor

    L'acteur principal est remarquable, un film de qualité. "Vol au-dessus d'un nid de coucou" avec Jack Nicholson, aurait-il été inspiré par ce film?
