Repulsion

Roman Polanski

This is possibly one of the finest of psychological shockers, and its DVD release is a cause for celebration. – Paper magazine

The first installment of what would become known as Polanski’s “apartment-house trilogy” (to be followed by Rosemary’s Baby and The Tenant), Repulsion – which Kenneth Tynan once called “Psycho” turned inside out – is an unforgettable, claustrophobic haunted-house story in which the haunting might be coming from within.
