“Repulsion”

You would think I’d put “Rosemary’s Baby” on here, but no, I find  “Repulsion” to be the superior horror film by infamous filmmaker Roman Polanski. The style, the substance, the overall theme of of exploiting human sexuality, it’s so raw. I don’t know how you could walk away with out a sense of being mind raped by such a movie.

The classic focus of the ‘Polanski-Girl’ or female protagonist, follows Carol, as she’s left all alone when her sister goes on vacation, a young beauty finds herself blockade on all sides by the demons of her past. This is, in all honesty, is a must have in the DVD or Bluray collection, and rightfully so, it’s available on Criterion.

Directed by: Roman Polanski

Screenplay by: Roman Polanski & Gérard Brach

Starring: Catherine Deneuve, Ian Hendry, John Fraser, Yvonne Furneaux, and Patrick Wymark
