HOUSE BY THE RIVER
1950, Kino Lorber, 88 min, USA, Dir: Fritz Lang

Struggling novelist Stephen Byrne (Louis Hayward) makes a play for his maid, and when she resists he impulsively murders her. Thus begins the web of evil that Byrne spins, drawing in his wife (Jane Wyatt) and brother (Lee Bowman) as his crimes pile up. Director Fritz Lang pours on the atmosphere in this eerie melodrama.
