Synopsis

Director Roman Polanski's critically acclaimed masterpiece depicting a young girl's descent into the vortex of madness. "By far the most terrifying film I have ever seen... Makes the Hitchcock of Psycho seem like a Novice." EVENING NEWS. "Masterful... Brilliant Movie... a rare pitch of tension." SUNDAY TELEGRAPH. "One of the most original subjects for a film of this kind... extremely well done and extremely frightening." THE GUARDIAN. "Terrifying... brilliant film." SUNDAY TIMES. "One of the most terrifying films I have ever seen... Daring Expressionist Technique... You will need to be very sophisticated not to squirm with suspense... Consummate acting... It is the stuff of which films are made..." EVENING STANDARD. "Shattering... A Masterpiece of the Macabre." DAILY MAIL. "An expert study in the Macabre... Repulsion is a film you definitely should see... Repulsion is no film for the squeamish, but neither is it a horror-for-horror's sake shocker... The Direction is meticulous in achieving its goose-pimpling atmosphere." DAILY EXPRESS. "It scared me stiff... Quite shattering... My heart was dancing to a coronary beat... Brilliant... I was very very scared. [sic] THE SUN. "She (Catherine Deneuve) gives a grandstand performance in a subtle, yet raw shocker which horrifies, fascinates, grips and excites with its brilliant evil." DAILY MIRROR. Winner of the Berlin Festival's Silver Bear Special Jury award, the International Critics Grand Prize and the FIPRESCI prize at the Vancouver Film Festival.
