The Lodger (Blu-ray)
Directed by John Brahm
The Lodger (Blu-ray)
Few film directors have mastered the art of suspense, thrills and intriguing plot twists the way that John Brahm (The Undying Monster) did - many consider his 1944 remake of the Alfred Hitchcock silent film about Jack the Ripper to be far superior to the original! After a mysterious young man named Slade (Laird Cregar, I Wake Up Screaming) rents a London flat, a murder spree begins nearby and the landlady suspects her new lodger to be Jack the Ripper. Kitty (Merle Oberon, Wuthering Heights), a talented singer ignores warnings about the crimes from her new love interest, Inspector John Warwick (George Sanders, Hangover Square) who’s assigned to the case - or the man who may have committed them and soon she becomes Slade's object of obsession in this pulse-pounder that packs an unsettling punch. Featuring stunning cinematography by the great Lucien Ballard (A Kiss Before Dying) and great supporting performances by Sara Allgood (Blackmail) and Sir Cedric Hardwicke (Rope).
"The evergreen horror of the Jack the Ripper case is given one of its best screen treatments in the 1944 crime thriller, The Lodger. Graced with an appealing cast and artfully-filmed scenes of shadowy menace, this underappreciated treasure is a testament to the artistry of its also unfortunately lesser known director John Brahm."
"One of the great Gothic thrillers of Hollywood’s Golden Age, John Brahm’s The Lodger offers a gorgeous production, scintillating performances, and effective, sustained suspense in its story of the Ripper on the loose in Victorian London."
