| Creepy Woman
After the death of her husband, the widow Clare Marrable (Geraldine Page) finds he has lost his fortune in bad investments and receives only a briefcase with a rusted dagger, a butterfly collection and a stamp collection. Completely broken, Clare moves to Tucson, Arizona where her unknown nephew George Lawson (Peter Brandon) gives an isolated house in the desert for her to live. Clare poses as if she has investments and kills her lonely housekeepers to steal their money. Then she buries their bodies in her garden and plants pine trees on their graves. After killing the housekeeper Miss Edna Tinsley (Mildred Dunnock), Clare receives the application of the mysterious Alice Dimmock (Ruth Gordon) that snoops around her house to investigate the disappearance of Tinsley helped by Mike Darrah (Robert Fuller). Meanwhile George leases an empty cottage in front of Clare's house to lodge his friend Harriet Vaughn (Rosemary Forsyth) and her ten year-old son. What will Clare do?

"What Ever Happened to Aunt Alice?" is a suspenseful film with a creepy woman. The evil Clare Marrable is one of the scariest serial-killer in the cinema history and Geraldine Page has a top-notch performance, supported by a great cast composed by the veteran actresses Ruth Gordon and Mildred Dunnock. The ironic conclusion is perfect to the story. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "A Mansão dos Desaparecidos" ("The Mansion of the Missing Ones")
