Is "The Bad Seed" the 1950s best psychological horror film or is there another?
Alastar.....You've succeeded in making me scratch my head. I may have seen "The Bad Seed," years ago, but I honestly don't recall. Actually, this is not a subject I know well. Horror films are not on my list of favorites and those I have seen, were quite by chance.
I'll have to dig into the archives now, as you have peaked my interest in this movie. When I think of older horror flicks, "Psycho," definitely comes to mind. It may not have been the "best," but it surely is infamous. I see that there is a serial horror show currently on TV...."Bates Hotel," is the name if I'm not mistaken. Obviously, the public wants to keep Norman Bates alive forever!.....I hope you receive some interesting feedback, Alastar! Peace, Paula
I don’t watch horror films as a rule (I’m probably the only person who has never watched “Psycho”), but I do like older films, and “The Bad Seed” was quite the psychological thriller. This young lady was quite the sociopath. The ending was chilling.
It was indeed a very good movie and one that left the viewer thinking about people in a new manner. There were some great movies back then so I cannot say it was the best psychological thriller/horror film but it right up there in the top five.
You know something Hyph, thinking on it, back then they used electro-shock and lobotomies as a matter of course. Maybe the young girl's fate was a deserved or undeserved one depending on the person' ! lol See you very soon, thanks for the plug on FB!
