31 Days of Halloween - Day 25 - Movie 1

After a justice of the peace is murdered, the investigation leads to a woman, her brother, and his wife, Emily, who has been acting very strangely lately. There's never any doubt who the murderer is, but her reasons, and true connection to the others is not what any of them expected.

I'm really fond of Homicidal (1961) William Castle's take on Psycho and revisit it from time to time. There is some hokiness to it, but there are two performances in this movie that are mesmerizing and a little disturbing. There's also some serious brutality in this movie which really contrasts nicely with the sleepy small town vibe of the rest of the movie. It's no classic, but it's a lot of fun.
