Clyde Gilmour Maclean's Magazine Pretentious touches in direction and camera work fail to bestow above-average merits on a whodunit about a series of murders at a summer resort. Nov 5, 2019 Full Review Alberto Abuín Espinof The best of the film, in addition to that harmless game of who is who, lies in the subtle interpretation of Anne Bancroft. [Full Review in Spanish] Sep 4, 2019 Full Review Matt Brunson Film Frenzy Solid performances and an unexpected ending raise this above the level of a standard programmer. Rated: 2.5/4 Dec 22, 2018 Full Review Dennis Schwartz Dennis Schwartz Movie Reviews To its credit, it's several notches above the standard exploitation drive-in fare that flooded the theaters in the late fifties.

Aldo G There are elements to the story that are of interest, but the whole thing feels like a cheap, exploitation film (probably because that's what it is.) Rated 2 out of 5 stars 12/27/23 Full Review martin a Great early slasher, horror film Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member To its credit, it's several notches above the standard exploitation drive-in fare that flooded the theaters in the late fifties. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review s r Posh? Utah? That description alone hooked me. It was a rather dry movie though. Bancroft surprised and van Doren was a bomb shell. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Pretty standard B-movie murder mystery fare. A few colorful characters aren't enough to rise it above unremarkable routine. Instantly forgettable. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/28/23 Full Review Read all reviews
