The Man in the Back Seat

Vernon Sewell (1961)

A Certificate


Our Score
The phrase "quota quickie" was synonymous with cheaply made, under-plotted films notable only for the ineptitude of the acting. It's a rare treat, therefore, to stumble across a British B with an intriguing idea that's been ingeniously executed. Director Vernon Sewell, who was responsible for some of the very worst quickies, outdoes himself with this haunting story that obviously has its roots in the Banquo's ghost segment of Macbeth. Derren Nesbitt and Keith Faulkner turn in creditable performances, but you can't help wondering what it would have been like with Peter Lorre and Elisha Cook Jr in the leads.
