DIARY OF A MADMAN (1963)
DIARY OF A MADMAN (1963)

Wonderful gothic melodrama directed with considerable flair by the delightfully monikered, Reginald Le Borg (now there’s a name entirely suited to the genre!). Like many early forays into Freudian horror the premise is somewhat clunky; that evil exists as a separate, sentient entity able to commandeer the mind of man for its own malevolent end. This ersatz poltergeist (The Horla) eventually takes hold of the noble and law abiding mind of Vincent Price (An actor with a seemingly effortless ability to play aristocratic crazies!) and proceeds to drag this once erudite magistrate into the degenerate realms of a gibbering bedlamite. ‘Diary of A Madman’ is a splendid, neatly wrought horror tale with yet another sterling Price performance to recommend it. This laudable, Guy De Maupassant adaptation is a worthy compliment to the similarly pitched Corman/Poe pot boilers from the same era.
