Wait Until Dark (1967)

Wait Until Dark is about a blind woman who comes into possession of a heroin filled doll that is being sought after by a trio of criminals and contains exactly zero spiders! I was intrigued by the idea of the main character being blind since, for some reason, I’m always drawn to horror movies with unconventional main characters. I loved watching the cat and mouse game between Susy and the bad guys. It was fun watching her try and come up with ways to survive. I was fist pumping when she threw gasoline on Roat, like good luck lighting a match now buddy. She kind of kicked ass at the end of the movie… she even stabbed the guy! Very cool character and I enjoyed watching her a lot.

There aren’t too many negatives I can come up with for this movie. The only thing that really sticks out in my mind was the plot which I felt was a little hard to follow at times. I think I missed something at the very beginning because it took me awhile to understand who had the doll and how they got it. Probably just my own fault and not really the movie’s though.

Overall, I had fun with this one and I think it’s a pretty good little thriller. Susy was a great character and the ending was as good as any I’d see in movies today. This is definitely worth a watch.

Verdict: 7.8/10 Tap so I know where you are!
