The Seventh Victim ★★★ 1943

Another Val Lewtonproduced lowbudget exercise in shadowy suggestion, dealing with a woman searching for her lost sister, who'd gotten involved with Satanists. The Hays Office's squeamishness regarding subject matter makes the film's action a bit cloudy but it remains truly eerie. 71m/B VHS, DVD . Kim Hunter, Tom Conway, Jean Brooks, Hugh Beaumont, Erford Gage, Isabel Jewell, Evelyn Brent; D: Mark Robson; W: Charles “Blackie” O'Neal.
