Maniac (7/10)

Movie number four from the excellent Icons of Suspense Collection: Hammer Films DVD package. Despite having a killer with a blow torch in the opening scenes of the movie, this movie is not quite on par with the other Hammer noir films I have seen. That’s not to say I didn’t like it. By the third act, after a bit of squirmy mother/daughter love-triangulation, there is finally some real suspense. Also, as one might expect, there is a neat little twist at the end that I never would have guessed.
