With the motive of greed. He never got sentenced, but everyone is convinced he is guilty. The situation gets worse, when the widow arrives. The phantoms of the past join the party and the prophecy that at least one shot will be fired at this hunting party, comes true.For me, one of the best movies directed by Murnau.

(us) wrote: Sleepwalkers' is not horror at its finest, either in terms of ability to truly frighten or to provide fun campiness. It straddles the line between the two, existing somewhere equidistant from both. It is never too over-the-top for us to laugh out loud with it, nor is it ever truly scary enough to make us shiver. As it stands, it is an extremely simple and very entertaining work of filmmaking, something that horror fans will enjoy and others should probably avoid.

(fr) wrote: Very powerful stuff. The storytelling, the acting, the mood, the visuals. Again, very powerful controversial stuff. Samuel Fuller is a filmmaker (like Martin Scorsese, Quientin Tarantino) isn't afraid to take risks and in this case it's all in "Shock Corridor" the story of a man who goes to mental hospital who pretends to go mentally insane to get information from the patients he conversates with in order to get a Pulitzer Prize. What I admire is Fuller's bold messages, an inmate who uses racial slurs to show America's insane obsession with racism, a prostitute who has a heart of gold, and finally the corrupt system of the beast (corruption in society, greed, media, politics) it's all there and it's all evident, inside of an insane asylum. Great stuff by the master director Samuel Fuller.

It's still watchable today, although the alien gets annoying when he adopts his human 'personality'. The kid's hair causes some distracting continuity issues inside the spaceship too. It kinda inflates and deflates in volume every few seconds. In general it's fun though.
(nl) wrote: Kate Beckinsale gives one of the strongest performances of her career as Rachel Armstrong, a focused, extremely motivated yet vulnerable Washington DC Journalist who exposes a CIA Operative based upon a reliable source who Armstrong won't give up. Beckinsale's performance is just sharp from top to bottom, she's convincing and the emotion in her face, especially during the prison scenes are enough to make you feel her pain, but also enough to make you decide should she tell her source, or keep it secret? The supporting cast are outstanding, Vera Farmiga shines in her volatile role, and Matt Dillon is a driven Prosecutor, all these compelling performances help flesh out these real characters in this based on actual events drama and bring them to life. With a couple of jaw dropping shocks and twists along the way and a cruel journey for Armstrong throughout this is a thoroughly engaging and brilliantly acted political drama.
(de) wrote: A rather strange addition to the film noir genre. You have all the elements of a noir film all be it some are reversed (the femme fatale is a man - Richard Widmark) plus some really brutal violence against the two lead women (one suffers a very cleverly shot psychological beating before she is murdered off screen - whilst the leading lady is violently thrown around a room during a sustained beating that concludes with her being shot), These scenes are still shocking today and separate this film from every other film I can think of in the genre. You have a heavy anti-communist propaganda element and the only spoiling factors are some obvious continuity errors and some rather cheesy incidental drama. That said, this is a great film. Samuel Fuller seems much more confident directing the tense and violent scenes and it's these scenes that make the film. Widmark is fantastic and confident 2-bit criminal but every cast member plays their role convincingly and with conviction, except perhaps Jean Peters but even she can be forgiven for her rather flat delivery considering the sustained beating she takes!
