The Killer is Loose 10/24/17


Psycho killers long ago lost their novelty, but in 1956 Budd Boetticher and Wendell Corey gave us Leon ‘Foggy’ Poole, a screen original with limitless appeal. Imagine a time when ‘normalcy’ was so taken for granted that any weird behavior was enough to give us the chills? Foggy carries this crime potboiler with a refreshing new idea: his dangerous maniac looks more normal than normal people. Joseph Cotten and Rhonda Fleming get top billing but this is actor Wendell Corey’s finest hour. On Blu-ray from ClassicFlix.
