Bedlam

Bedlam is a 1946 Val Lewton production directed by Mark Robson and starring Boris Karloff.

Moria says, "With a complex blend of literary metaphors and historical analysis, this is arguably one of the finest written and most overlooked of the Lewton films." 1000 Misspent Hours closes its negative review by saying, "All in all, Bedlam is a well-made but gutless film, and it’s hardly surprising that it marked the end of the road for RKO horror in the 40’s." The New York Times says it is "several cuts above the average run of so-called horror films."

    I saw "Bedlam" late one night as an older kid when I was up sick. I'm sure that doesn't color my opinion that it wasn't the strongest of films. :o)
