Terence Young Estados Unidos, 1967

Log Lady's rating of the film Wait Until Dark

A well shot thriller, but the premise of concocting a ridiculously and unnecessarily elaborate plot to retrieve the doll does it no favors. Entertaining for sure, but even the final half hour never gets into a Hitchcockian level of tension, and the final nail on the coffin is Hepburn's melodramatic performance (I've never been her fan, and here she's just so stagey and cringey it was hard to watch).
