A noir psychodrama set amongst the oil fields of Oklahoma with obvious nods to a particular Hitchcock classic, Stark Fear is the sole film directed by WWII cameraman Ned Hockman, with B-pic favorites Beverly Garland and Skip Homeier (in a particularly oily performance).

Our take

A sleazy, slippery noir set in the shadowy oil fields of Oklahoma, Stark Fear was the only film directed by WWII cameraman Ned Hockman. More than a B-movie oddity, this cult grindhouse classic is laced with the sting of Hitchcock, and pitch-perfect performances from Beverly Garland & Skip Homeier.
