Movies At Random: Repulsion

Today’s random movie is Roman Polanski’s Repulsion (HU DVD 1944). This critically acclaimed film starring Catherine Deneuve is considered one of Polanski’s greatest works.

Here’s our summary:

Carol, who works in a beauty salon in London during the 1960s, is both repulsed and fascinated by men. She is unsure of how to handle their advances, which are numerous because she is gorgeous. Gripped by mental illness, she eventually imprisons herself in her apartment, where she suffers from sexual dreams. Her delirium leads to dire circumstances.

According to Wikipedia, “Repulsion was the first installment in Polanski’s “Apartment Trilogy”, followed by Rosemary’s Baby (1968) and The Tenant (1976), both of which are horror films that also take place primarily inside apartment buildings.” Rosemary’s Baby (HU DVD 5783) and The Tenant (HU DVD 10533) are, of course, also worth watching and in our collection.

Happy viewing!
