Cause for Alarm (2005) Horror Movie Review
Horror movies Review
Sometimes, a small near B film can create more interest than an expensive overproduced dinosaur. “Cause for Alarm” is such a film. Loretta Young stars as a middle class housewife coping with an ailing husband with a heart condition. The husband fantasises that Young is plotting to kill him and sets her up to be incriminated.
The film is overlong but Young sustains the tension as she understands what hubby is doing and her hysteria mounts as she tries to retrieve a letter he has posted to the District Attorney. One can imagine that the script would have made a great radio play.
The DVD contains no extras and the print is only OK. The film is worth seeing for Young’s performance, one which defies her reputation as a somewhat superficial actress of limited talents.
