Repulsion (1965)

Director: Roman Polanski
Writers:  Roman Polanski, Gerard Brach, David Stone
Cast:      Catherine Deneuve, Ian Hendry, John Fraser
Left alone when her sister goes on vacation, a young beauty finds herself besieged on all sides by the demons of her past.

This is the first English language film from Polanski and is a tremendous achievement considering the time it was made. Reminded me of Shining and Repulsion can be considered as a precursor to the psychological thriller genre with minimal visuals.

Rating: 4.5/5
