EW PICK

A nifty little suspense tale lifted into near-greatness by Tuesday Weld's performance as a radiantly sexy high school majorette who tricks an understandably gaga Tony Perkins (freshly released from a mental institution) into helping her commit murder. Set in a small Massachusetts mill town, Pretty Poison unfolds like a literary thriller and sustains an air of eerily calm menace and — thanks to director Noel Black and the enthusiastic work of Weld and Perkins—an erotic allure that will jolt you. EXTRAS None of note; and oh, for a Weld commentary!
