Katt Shea on

Shock Corridor

Released 1963
Distributor Allied Artists

1963 America is a madhouse. Sam Fuller’s lurid tabloid classic plays like a brilliantly subversive combination of Krafft-Ebing and The National Enquirer. Ingeniously designed on a shoestring by Eugene Lourie and starkly shot by the great Stanley Cortez. One of the best B pictures ever, whose profundity lies in its answer to the existential question, “Who killed Sloan in the kitchen?”
