  1. DenoResandono's rating of the film The Beguiled

    There are two things - why THE BEGUILED is a great movie. First - in this movie, Clint Eastwood played against his usual types. In THE BEGUILED, he's not a cool or tough hero like we used to see in Dollars Trilogy. In THE BEGUILED he played as an injured soldier. He's also a playboy and some kind of loser. Second, director Don Siegel succeed to give a nightmarish presentation in here. A great Southern Gothic genre...

  2. The Mayor Of Hell's rating of the film The Beguiled

    Great premise ! Hasn't aged great given the 70s filmmaking style that is all over this film in a bad way. Siegel doesn't quite get the horror aspect right I don't believe. Can see why someone would want to update this. Haven't seen the remake but look forward to it. Great score. Clint is fun here slowly and methodically charming about every lil girl in the house regardless of age. Of course he goes for the hot one

  3. Cinema Omnivore's rating of the film The Beguiled

    7.3/10, my review:

  4. DSPRKY's rating of the film The Beguiled

    The line readings are very 70s, and the characters so obviously horrid that you have to try to enjoy the film as an off-the-wall psycho-horror experiment if you are to extract any value from it at all. Unfortunately, I don't find Eastwood compelling, and the flashbacks are generally ham-fisted. Not seeing a Gothic masterpiece here, just a relic of 1970s filmmaking.

  5. HKFanatic's rating of the film The Beguiled

    It's remarkable to consider that, in the same year Don Siegel and Clint Eastwood released the Right Wing action classic "Dirty Harry," they also collaborated on this simmering and claustrophobic film that still radiates with erotic menace. Although some may disagree, it's difficult not to read this as a horror movie - trading in those potent horror themes of sexual repression and mistrust between the sexes.

  6. Bilouaustria's rating of the film The Beguiled

    Perverse and cynical as excepted, Siegel goes far in this caricature of a fairy tale that becomes slowly a nightmare. Forget the suggestion of classical Hollywood, here it goes straight to the point. This young ladies are not innocent at all, quite the contrary, and this devil of a caporal is not a threat but the one who got captured (like a bird). Siegel dares everything and Eastwood is charismatic as hell..

  7. msmichel's rating of the film The Beguiled

    Don Siegel's adaptation of the Southern Gothic novel by Thomas Cullinan resulted in one of his best pictures. One can practically feel the oppressive heat and the feeling of being caged in more ways than one. Performances are solid especially Geraldine Page who excels here.

  8. James Mackin's rating of the film The Beguiled

    More intriguing and well constructed than the remake, although the remake certainly looked nicer.

  9. bryanvmh's rating of the film The Beguiled

    Probably a better movie than the remake, and despite being older lays into the gore and sexual aspects of the movie more forthrightly.

  10. Jugu Abraham's rating of the film The Beguiled

    Good adaptation of the novel. The black lady gets a major role here. One of Don Siegel's best works.

  11. VincentVendetta's rating of the film The Beguiled

    After Eastwood became the Man with No Name and just before he became Dirty Harry, it's fascinating that Don Seigel himself would proceed to castrate and reveal the hypocrisy of the smooth-talking Hollywood star.

  12. moniquekidman's rating of the film The Beguiled

    Despite some decidedly queasy representations of characters, this film is just a lot of fun. Every frame is infused with a repressive heat that is constantly dialed up until the very end. Geraldine Page is compelling as the ideologically and sexually conflicted matriarch figure and I can't really blame the characters for getting all worked up about Clint.

  13. Latias's rating of the film The Beguiled

    Eastwood was soooo young; barely recognized him. The story was quite simple. Really good performance from page. Well I'd like interaction among girls/ladies was less than expected; hopefully to see more in Sofia's version.

  14. Genadijus L.'s rating of the film The Beguiled

    Pathetic, straightforward and almost like a lesson of "sex education in the XIXth century" by Don Siegel. Wishy-washy performance by Clint Eastwood, though Geraldine Page gives pretty strong performance as the owner Martha. Enjoyed the simple and sincere song song during opening and closing credicts.

  15. Severus Snape's rating of the film The Beguiled

  16. OldGermanCurrency's rating of the film The Beguiled

    4,5 - Dissolves are about passion.

  17. gld48's rating of the film The Beguiled

    Watched as a double feature with Picnic At Hanging Rock. Both have the theme of sexual repression in a constricting society. This was great, some great performances all round. Who knew Clint Eastwood was into mushrooms.

  18. Aube James's rating of the film The Beguiled

    The genre alone prepped me for upcoming sanctimoniousness and transgressions. Themes I'd expect from a Southern Gothic film. And it didn't disappoint. How severely underrated this film was. Awesome cast, performances, story. Misleading trailer. Definitely not an action movie.

  20. Michael Zyx MH Claes's rating of the film The Beguiled

    "Les femmes sont capables de tromperie, d'escroquerie, de meurtre, de tout. Derrière leur masque d'innocence se cache autant de scélératesse que vous pourriez en trouver chez un membre de la Mafia." Voilà ce que le réalisateur américain Don Siegel écrivait dans ses mémoires, des années après le tournage de son film mémorable, "Les Proies".

  21. letters never sent's rating of the film The Beguiled

    If you liked Picnic at Hanging Rock you might be beguiled by this film.

  22. thomasjeff16's rating of the film The Beguiled

    You know a movie is going to be creepy when a grown man kisses a 12 year old (who's going to be 13 in September) in the beginning of the movie. A delicious southern gothic.

  23. Ben Bosko's rating of the film The Beguiled

    what a romantic way to speak of mushrooms
