Ratings & Reviews

  1. SpacePirate's rating of the film Shock Corridor

    A little bit better than White Dog or Naked Kiss, Fuller still is a bit of an emperor without clothes director for me. So many better films out there. why waste time on this garbage?

  2. Massimo's rating of the film Shock Corridor

    A masterpiece of grace, brutality, humor, visionary, surrealism, poetry, bitterness..

  3. Josh the Bookseller's rating of the film Shock Corridor

    The actual driving plot is tossed-off, tedious; the real money is when Fuller indulges in hallucinatory psycho-exploitation.

  4. Jdsarmientoburgos's rating of the film Shock Corridor

    Forget One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest, this is the nuthouse film to watch. It fits the fun exploitative b genre, but tackles the subconscious of the type of men 60s America had thrown to the wayside, including a self-hating black man. A wild trip to be had.

  5. dionysus67's rating of the film Shock Corridor

    An exquisite psychological and political labyrinth that manipulates superbly cinematic tropes and conventions (like the repressed face of the 'other' as the enemy), provides a disturbing view of human sexuality, yields, in cascades of color, epiphanies of the three mental patients, the tormented idenity inversions that obscure reason and turns the ambitious reported into a catatonic mirror of systemic authority.

  6. 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...

  7. gld48's rating of the film Shock Corridor

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

  8. William R Clark'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.

  9. 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.

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

  11. 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.

  12. FISCHER's rating of the film Shock Corridor

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

  13. 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.

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

  15. 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.

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

  17. HSBilly's rating of the film Shock Corridor

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

  18. 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.

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

    Schlock Corridor is more like it

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

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

  21. 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 !

  22. 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

  23. 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").

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

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