SECRET BEYOND THE DOOR
1948, Universal, 99 min, USA, Dir: Fritz Lang

Director Fritz Lang jumped (with abandon) onto the 1940s Freudian bandwagon with this wildly symbolic cinematic fright ride. On a pre-wedding holiday, Joan Bennett meets the real man of her dreams (Michael Redgrave), who sweeps her off her feet and into a nightmarish honeymoon that's a cross between REBECCA and BLUEBEARD. Ridiculous but visually stunning!
