| Too Tame To be a Classic
HOMICIDAL is an obvious PSYCHO "homage". Scene after scene, one gets a vivid sense of deja vu while watching the William Castle shocker. The main problem with HOMICIDAL, other than the fact that it's very derivative of PSYCHO, is that it's way too tame, certainly compared TO the Alfred Hitchcock classic. The beginning is intriguing and weird, and the ending is good and surreal but everything in between is rather flat and dull. It seems the only thing we see are people walking in and out of doors, in and out of cars, etc. And the well thought out story is too brief for its own good.

The truly great thing in HOMICIDAL is Jean Arless, or Joan Marshall. WOW! Jean/Joan was great. It's hard to believe her career didn't take off after her appearance in HOMICIDAL. Her unusual performance is the film's most intriguing and original aspect.
