Creepy and suspenseful but ultimately disappointing
I caught this movie on TV and was hooked until the very end. The story is about a very wealthy elderly widow who finds love with a contractor and marries him. The widow however has 2 children from her previous marriage. Her son is a greedy man, who resents the marriage as he doesn’t want to have to share any inheritance he would receive after his mother passes on. The son hires a nurse who is given the job of making the wealthy woman sick, so the son can have her sign over control of the money to him.
I found Dina Merrill’s performance to be quite good. It was so sweet to see how much her and the new husband loved each other. The son and the nurse were really creepy and made me feel really frustrated.
The only problem I had was that by the end of the movie I felt really angry and had no satisfaction at the ending. Was very disappointed.
Good performances, mostly good script, just a disappointing ending.
Not a patch on Hitchcock
This film is promoted as a Hitchcock-style thriller but it pales when compared with Hitchcock’s classics such as Strangers on a Train and Dial “M” for Murder. With the main characters being fabulously rich and so being able to buy private jets and magnificent houses at the drop of a hat, the film has the air of a TV movie rather than a cinema offering.
Ted and Laura (Rod Taylor and Dina Merrill) are a retired couple who buy a lighthouse with underground living space when they see it featured on TV. Their son, Mark (Rick Johnson) is none to pleased about this as he sees his inheritance slipping away despite being wealthy himself. This is where the Hitchcockian aspect comes into play as Mark plans a two-pronged attack to get his hands on his mother’s money, first by legal means and then by the sexy slinky femme fatale. The end of the film is a bit ambiguous and the supernatural dream clip at the end is pure corn.
Rod Taylor and Dina Merril are old hands at this sort of thing and Rick Johnson is suitably nasty as the darkly avaricious son. The best performance is by Rebecca Broussard who oozes sensuality as the sexy psycho nurse Monet. There are moments of tension but it is not a film that will have you on the edge if your seat, so only 4 stars.
