Wait Until Dark (1967) Rated NR

A blind woman is terrorized by a group of thugs looking for drugs in her apartment. Based on the play by Frederick Knott. Starring Audrey Hepburn, Alan Arkin, and Richard Crenna.

This is one of those films that you think you know how this story will be but find out later it isn’t at all what you expected. I like those films; they surprise you, and most of the time, it’s the good surprise. Of course, we have Hepburn playing the blind woman, and she is exceptional. The film starts off innocently enough, but the director builds the threat until the exploding ending. The film is not Oscar-worthy, but it is one that brings entertainment. The movie is filmed like a stage play, which it’s based on. It’s one that is worth a watch.
