Decades before Scream made us afraid of the telephone, Midnight Lace scared Doris Day to death with the damned thing.
Rex Harrison plays her loving husband, whose accent is the most frightening thing of all. It’s a truly terrifying thriller where nothing is ever clear, everyone is suspect, and Day’s character might even be making the whole thing up.
Or she might be insane. That’s always an option.
Everything is on the table in this incredible mystery that makes great use of its twist ending. Fortunately, the trailer dares the audience not to be fully creeped out by the first few lines.
