31 Days of Halloween - Day 13 - Movie 1

Based on the short story by Edgar Allan Poe, The Black Cat (1966) is about a drunk asshole who abuses his wife and pets, becoming more and more psychotic until he is driven to murder.

This movie is amateurish in every regard, yet also manages to be disturbing in its scenes of what is, hopefully, staged, and not genuine animal abuse. I wouldn't go so far as to recommend it, but considering how many elements it has stacked against it, it still turns out to be a pretty effective adaptation.
