White of the Eye
Directed by Donald Cammell
A woman suspects her loving husband is a vicious serial killer in this intense thriller from Donald Cammell (DEMON SEED). Joan (Cathy Moriarty) has been with Paul (David Keith) for nearly ten years, and though their relationship hasn’t been easy, she’s crazy about him. But when police start connecting Paul to a series of gruesome killings of housewives, Joan pokes around Paul’s hiding spots, and discovers some disturbing information about the man she thought she knew. Overlooked upon its release, this gripping Hitchcockian gem is ripe for rediscovery.

LOVE this flick. Absolute hidden gem (thanks Sleazoids for the hot tip!) - atmospheric, sexy, and brutal (more in tone than gore). Leans more thriller/suspense than balls-out horror. And Paul sure ain’t hard on the eyes, so it’s got that going for it. LOVE THIS.
First time seeing this movie and the only thing I can say is it should scare people more than any other horror movie on Shudder because the sad reality is some people really are like this. They might not go so far as to kill but will lie, cheat, abuse, manipulate, control and use all the while STILL telling you that they love you. Scary indeed.
Classic, hidden gem. Rented this on VHS in 90? 91? A great film and proof Shudder is worth keeping.
I liked it. Too many desert shots but you know what. Its nice film. Like a better quality but less sex out of the dark. You know what though. It works. S
You're not going to forget this film. It's definitely a one of a kind movie, very different from anything else and you just can't stop watching it. Donald Cammell only made a few movies but if you like this you should check out Performance, Demon Seed, Don't Look Back and anything he made with Nicholas Roeg.
