  4. cherbourgdoll's rating of the film Strait-Jacket

  5. Scotch's rating of the film Strait-Jacket

    I appreciate any positive representation of mental illness rehabilitation—even if for axe murderers with crazy bangles and especially if it involves Crawford—but yawn. Hello George Kennedy as a creepy ranch hand. HAHA.

  6. João R's rating of the film Strait-Jacket

    Joan Crawford was perfection in this.

  7. MikeEverleth's rating of the film Strait-Jacket

    Fantastic performance by Joan Crawford who veers from bat-shit crazy to a meek little mouse, sometimes it seems like in the same scene. The mystery isn't hard to solve, especially considering the screenwriter, but is fun enough to go along with the ride. And absolutely love George Kennedy's Boo Radley-like performance.

  8. Gary Wood's rating of the film Strait-Jacket

    Hands down Mr. Castle's best film. No matter the caricature most people see her as, Joan Crawford is actually very good in this film; sympathetic, creepy, and sad.

    If someone knows where to buy the mask of Joan Crawford from this film! I would love to have it. Check this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aIKAibJhh10 and this too http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1EMbnZUgLSk

    Christina! Bring me the axe!

  12. Matt Kovar's rating of the film Strait-Jacket

    Totally trying to milk the Pyscho plot, but what wild film. I love it. I watched most of it with my jaw on the floor.

  13. Christopher R. Smith's rating of the film Strait-Jacket

    Obviously an attempt to cash in on the success of 'Psycho' - it even borrows some of the plot elements - this film goes for lurid shock more than Hitchcock's masterful suspense. It's a bit too long, and the twist ending is pretty predictable, but this is still a fun pulp horror film - thanks in a big part to the over-the-top atmosphere and Joan Crawford's hysterical performance.
