Psycho in Strait-JacketReviewed byandrabemVote: 8/10

"Strait-Jacket" tells this story: Lucy Habin (Joan Crawford) surprises her husband with another woman. She falls into madness and kills them both, and her daughter sees everything. After spending 20 years in an asylum, she's is considered recovered and released. She leaves the asylum and goes to live with her daughter. Very simply told this is just the introduction of the film. The rest you can guess but maybe you'll guess wrong. I said maybe.

This is an interesting film. It is deceivingly naive but those able to go beyond the story will make their own discoveries. For one thing: "Strait-Jacket" was filmed in 1963 when society was more conservative - social rules and divisions were much more rigid then. There were mainly two choices (especially in small towns and rural areas) - either adapt to society and its straight-jacket or else be an outcast. Why am writing this? Because this is one of my readings of the film.

Anyway "Strait-Jacket" is a good thriller (not so much for the scares but rather for the atmosphere). Well, it hasn't the sophistication of some film noirs of the 40s and 50s but its charm resides in its simplicity not deprived of sense of humor. Joan Crawfords acting is of course superb and the supporting cast does also a good job. The story is interesting and will keep your attention till the end.

I've seen 2 other Castle films ("The Tingler" and "House on Haunted Hill") - both of them funny and entertaining, but I think that "Strait-Jacket" is the best one - it is not so amateurish and goes deeper than the other ones, but still preserves the light touch characteristic of William Castle. There are surprises in store. Go for it!

Better than mostReviewed byfuzzy_pattersVote: 7/10

I was expecting this to be another cheesy Castle flick. It would be entertaining but nothing memorable. However, this film was much better than the rest of Castle's films. The direction of the ax sequences was superb. You are constantly expecting the ax to drop, but it just never does. You can definitely see the influence that this film as had on horror films from Halloween to date.

Of course, I would be remiss if I did not also mention that having Crawford and Baker in the cast made it a much better acted film than most of Castle's as well. Crawford's ability to move from mood to mood with her character was mind boggling. It was almost like she was playing three or four different characters in the same film. Baker was beautiful and played really well off of Crawford. For a horror film, this was actually a very good movie.

Who says Castle couldn't direct?!?Reviewed byDavid-240Vote: 10/10

This is one of the most enjoyable horror films ever. The closing credits gag reveals the spirit of the picture - it is not to be taken seriously. By the way don't spoil a great laugh by reading what that gag is, in the "crazy credits" section. This is pure camp fun, played brilliantly by Joan Crawford in an Oscar worthy performance. The opening narration is hilarious - and Joan's get-up (black fright wig, clinging floral dress and clanging bangles) is outrageous. You'll probably guess the surprise ending - but that's not what this film is about. Besides the fun element there is also a subversive political statement - Castle sets his axe-murder horror on a sweet little farm, that looks like a set from a family sit-com. And the family that live in it are too good to be true as well. But all this is a facade, as insanity, lust and murder lie just below the surface.

Also of note in the cast are George Kennedy - excellent as the twisted handy-man, and Diane Baker as the perfect daughter. And apparently that's Lee Majors being hacked up at the start of the film. Castle does a brilliant directing job, but it's Joan's film all the way - what she can do with knitting and matches is truly amazing! And the scene where she attempts to seduce her daughter's boyfriend is nothing short of magic. I can't believe that an actress who could play this scene with such good humour, could have taken herself as seriously as "Mommie Dearest" suggests. Do not miss this over-looked classic.
