Repulsion movie poster

Polanski's brilliantly crafted and profoundly morbid thriller about a London manicurist who harbors a consuming hatred of sex, and who, when her stable sister leaves town on a romantic holiday, goes spectacularly insane locked inside her flat — the walls turn to putty, the carcasses putrify, and the outside world won't keep away. Catherine Deneuve is for the first time used counter to her serene, blank appearance. 1965.

Duncan Shepherd
