Critics reviews

The Dennis Price character in Kind Hearts and Coronets is at least intellectually superior to his victims, but Chabrol’s poltergeist remains decisively inferior. The point of view is thus morally diseased from beginning to end, and whatever amusement we derive from the pranks directed against a vulnerably big-hearted man and wife is an index of our own repressed aggressions against those we envy and admire.
