Our Score
Very odd and rarely shown, this intriguing, arty horror movie was shot in Sweden by Hungarian director Laslo Benedek (who directed Brando in The Wild One) and stars a handful of Ingmar Bergman's repertory company of actors - Max von Sydow, Liv Ullmann, Per Oscarsson. Von Sydow is a farmer accused of murder he didn't commit, who ingeniously escapes from his insane asylum prison nightly to kill the people who put him there. This spooky gothic thriller has a compelling atmosphere that's most unusual.


A man falsely declared insane and sent to an asylum for a murder his sister and her husband committed escapes to seek revenge. Horror starring Max von Sydow and Liv Ullmann.
