Description

"Starring Robert Newton (Kiss the Blood Off My Hands), Phil Brown (The Camp on Blood Island), Sally Gray (They Made Me a Fugitive), and Naunton Wayne (Alfred Hitchcock's The Lady Vanishes), Obsession takes a dark and unsettling journey into the mind of a murderer. When psychiatrist Clive (Newton) learns that his wife, Storm (Gray), is having an affair, he resolves to take revenge by kidnapping and murdering her lover, Bill (Brown), and dissolving his corpse in acid. As Bill languishes in Clive's cellar, Detective Finsbury (Wayne) doggedly pursues the case... Written by Alec Coppel (Vertigo), scored by Nino Rota (8½, The Godfather), and directed by Edward Dmytryk (The Sniper) during his blacklist-induced exile in Britain, Obsession's original release was delayed due to the ongoing court case of real-life 'Acid Bath Murderer' John Haigh."
