Diabolique

1954 Rated NR 1hr 56m

The ailing spouse (Véra Clouzot) and manhandled mistress (Simone Signoret) of a sadistic boarding school headmaster (Paul Meurisse) plan and execute the man's murder -- but their plan goes haywire when the corpse vanishes. Henri-Georges Clouzot directs his real-life wife in this icy, black-and-white masterwork of homicide and Grand Guignol suspense, which ranked No. 49 on the Bravo network's "100 Scariest Movie Moments."

While Criterion has provided the premium transfer of this exceptional film, they have done little else -- yet they still charge they're premium prices. All the more reason for seeing this film as a Netflix rental. Sound is mono, but clear and the picture is indeed quite sharp.
