Shock Corridor

A journalist fakes mental illness to get himself committed to a mental hospital for a story. Soon, he starts to lose his mind.

Special Features: interview with star Constance Towers by film historian and filmmaker, Charles Dennis; "The typewriter, the rifle and the movie camera, Adam Simon's 1996 documentary on director Samuel Fuller.

This film pulls you into the world of one mental hospital and the reporter who thinks he can withstand the environment. As the character slowly goes insane you might feel you are joining him. Fuller had a way of bringing the viewing into the middle of the action.
In the special features, both Quentin Tarantino and Tim Robbins reflect on the impact and the person of Sam Fuller. ~Mike
