Sheila Keith stars as a former patient of a mental institution who has settled down in a remote farmhouse, where she tells fortunes in her spare time. But the kind, maternal exterior conceals a dreadful monster, which the asylum, it seems, was unable to cure.

Having enjoyed Sheila Keith's performance in House of Whipcord, I was intrigued to see that she appeared in another film from Pete Walker. I was not disappointed with Frightmare, an entertaining low-budget shocker. While not as grim as House of Whipcord, there were enough dark elements to keep me interested. The ending really caught me by surprise. For this kind of film, the script and the acting was above average.

Wow. Emotionally complex and suspenseful horror yarn that takes aim squarely at (male) authority figures and experts (judges, psychiatrists, doctors, mental institutions) by exploring (a uniquely female) irrationality. Sheila Keith is great as Dorothy, as is Rupert Davies as her complicit husband. Walker's subversive horror films are required viewing.

THIS SITE SO FAR SUCKS!!! THE MOVIES HAVE TO STOP AND LOAD EVERY 20 SECONDS

When that happens to me, i just reboot my computer and it works fine. You can also try reducing the KBS speed in the bar at the bottom.

That could be a browser issue. I encountered the same problem using Firefox. I have absolutely no issues with Chrome.
