Atypical Serial killer Movies # 6


6 – Seance on a wet afternoon (Bryan Forbes, UK,1964)


*** This is more of a kidnapping movie.

To achieve fame, a medium and her husband kidnap a young girl and pretend to solve the crime.

Careful directing, great framing , beautiful B&W cinematography (courtesy of Gerry Tupin), a top-notch John Barry score (far away from his James Bond entries). Kim Stanley received a well deserved Oscar nomination and we get one more celluloid proof of Richard Attenborough’s acting genius. Attenborough actually makes us care about a character that should be considered despicable in the first place. 1960’s movie-making at its best.
