When someone murders Paula Alquist’s aunt, Paula, who lives with her, finds the body. Police fail to find the killer, but Paula soon leaves for a far off school anyway. Ten years pass, and Paula returns to London with a new husband. They take up residence in her aunt’s old house which she has since inherited. As Paula’s husband increasingly isolates her, she begins to notice strange goings-on. Everything from missing pictures to odd footsteps in the night, and even the home’s gaslights dim without anyone touching them. As Paula fights for her sanity, her new husband’s intentions start to come into question.

Nice to hear a little recap of previous picks to see where Bobby stands on them. As far as gaslight goes, I’ve heard the original British film is better. Apparently MGM bought the rights to remake it and tried to destroy all prints of the original! Crazy. This is the 2nd George Cukor film picked btw, Patrick also chose Philadelphia Story.

Looking forward to The Graduate, that used to be on my top 10. Did you say Shane picked it?
