This chilling psychological drama begins with Morris and other inmates breaking out of prison, then forcing Bellamy, a psychologist, and his family to hide them from the police (shades of THE DESPERATE HOURS). The doctor persuades the convict to undergo analysis during this time. While

under hypnosis, Morris recounts his terrible experiences, seen in flashback, offering an unconscious recitation which pinpoints his mania for murder. A taut story, moody cinematography by Ballard, sharp direction from Vidor, and superlative acting by Morris and Bellamy earn this film noir entry a

top spot in the genre. (Remade as THE DARK PAST.)
