There are psychopaths, and then there are psychopaths. Wendell Corey is stunning as a 1950s Gary Leon Ridgway. This low-budget film wants to explore masculinity and the inadvisability of "protecting" women, but it's fuzzy on the details. Corey and Joseph Cotton, both of whom worked with Hitchcock, seem to get it; the other performers, not so much.
