Critics reviews

My favorite Halloween movie [The Black Cat] is low on gore but high on disturbance. It depicts much less violence than it suggests, and some of the most horrific violence that it suggests is evoked solely by means of words. It’s an early talking film, and it displays the cinematic impact of language and of music alongside the powerful and uncanny images that its director—a great but often overlooked stylist—created.
