5.0 out of 5 stars DOUBLE DOSE DELIGHT!!! March 27, 2011
Format:DVD
This is why I buy movies, two somewhat obscure yet competently made thrillers of the PSYCHO-era (late 1950's, early 1960's) appearing on dvd together from out of the public domain netherland!
Though STARK FEAR mentions that some picture anomalies are present due to the rarity of the film source I was quite pleased with overall product and didn't find myself disturbed in any way by a dark/light, jumpy/splicy print. The picture image and sound quality seemed no worse than any other public domain release and I didn't even notice the so-called "warning" until after I had seen the film and was then reading the box art.
Both films in my opinion (not that that's worth much) are gems of low budget film making, and as I stated above, that's exactly why I search out such things as this double bill dvd.
Imagine...FRIGHT being made by a major Hollywood studio at the time. I'm sure that's what the screenwriter had hoped for. And it would have worked if Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward had been cast in the lead roles with Hitchcock directing. I'm just suggesting that this could have been a very well known film and possible classic under the right circumstances. Eric Fleming and Nancy Malone are quite exceptional in their roles, much better than one would or should expect from a low budgeted film. And I've seen director Wilder's KILLERS FROM SPACE and PHANTOM FROM SPACE and though I like those films in a schlocky kind of way, I must say that his direction here seems much more polished and on a more professional par as he's able to draw good performances from all cast members.
Eric Fleming, a psychiatrist, becomes involved with Nancy Malone, a woman who may or may not be possessed by the spirit of an 19th century Austrian baroness.

4.0 out of 5 stars Regression Therapy... September 15, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video
A woman named Ann Summers (Nancy Malone) starts seeing a psychiatrist named Dr. Hamilton (Eric Fleming) after she witnesses him talk a desperate criminal down from a bridge. After a few sessions, Dr. Hamilton realizes that Ann either has two separate personalities, or else she is the reincarnation of a Baroness who died in 1889! FRIGHT is a good thriller w/ a solid plot. There are some interesting twists that add to the fun, and the finale is quite original. Recommended...

3.0 out of 5 stars Worth a look July 24, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video
Director W. Lee Wilder is Billy Wilder's younger brother -- and a thoroughly underrated director of low-budget movies that get under your skin. W. Lee Wilder basically cuts to the chase in all of his films, which are mostly about the baser instincts of humanity. "Fright" is about a psychiatrist and his fascination with a woman who thinks she is the reincarnation of a 19th century woman -- and it haunts her.

Before "Fright," I had seen three other W. Lee Wilders: "The Glass Alibi," "The Pretender" and "Bluebeard's Ten Honeymoons." -- all really, really good. I liked "Fright," but would have to rank it last among those four films. Wilder is clearly working with budget issues here, and trying to make a silk purse out of a sow's ear. But it's nevertheless a very interesting film.

Bear in mind that, in my view, B pictures often appeal to a baser, almost evolutionary instinct that we have as humans. They don't pretend to be "important," they operate outside studio systems and can often be more honest films. In a way, B films tell us more about what people "were" thinking and feeling at the time they were made, as opposed to what people "should" be thinking and feeling, as A pictures do. Just my 2 cents.

I bought this to watch Eric Fleming. He did a great job in this movie. Too bad that he died so young!

5.0 out of 5 stars Not That Good But Not That Bad Either November 25, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Interesting failures which closer to their period would have had greater impact. At this price plus the attractive packaging this disc remains a must have for fans of cheap cinema. Stark Fright enriched with a terrific cast.

Format:VHS Tape
Shot in New York City locations, this film, also titled SPELL OF THE HYPNOTIST, opens with escaped murderer George Morley (Frank Marth) being trapped by police officers upon a high bridge, prompting a psychiatrist, Dr. James Hamilton (Eric Fleming) to attempt hypnotising, with the approval of the on-scene police supervisor, the killer whose vicious crimes he has been following through newspaper reports. An onlooker at the scene, Ann Summers (Nancy Malone) is apparently simultaneously also hypnotised and subsequently visits Hamilton at his office, with the doctor, attracted to the young woman, beginning treatments for her in a case that he perceives as an instance of dual personality, Ann's body ostensibly being shared with a reincarnated Austrian, Baroness Maria Vetsera, lover of Hapsburg Crown Prince Rudolph, and co-participant in the infamous sex scandal that culminated in the royal hunting lodge, Mayerling, with their mutual suicide pact in 1889. This manner of theme, that narrating a multiple personality disorder, requires a good deal of cinematic talent to be convincing, but such is not on board here, the film suffering not only from a poorly organised script and weak direction, but also from a particularly wooden Fleming, whose expressivity is nearly completely non-existent, a deadly flaw indeed in a story that is depicting his character as being in love with his patient. Malone tries hard but her lines, as with much of the screenplay's dialogue, are not credibly written, and the pacing of the piece is notably erratic with a result that a viewer will probably feel as little emotional involvement in the action as does the stoical Fleming.
