Vertigo (1958) Review


Vertigo (1958)

Director Alfred Hitchcock, known best for classic thrillers such as Psycho (1960) and The Birds (1963), delivers his usual plot twist and psychological thriller that leaves the audience in a dazed emotion. (Blogger here felt a sudden eerie uneasiness in the room after credits rolled…probably the haunting scream)

Detective John Ferguson (Scottie to his acquaintances) retires, after his acrophobia causes the death of a fellow police officer during a rooftop chase. All is well until an old friend, Gavin Elster, invites him over and asks him to spies on his wife, whom has been acting strangely (staring at a portrait for hours, wanders to places like the cemetary and San Francisco Bay on a daily occasion); Gavin believes his wife is possessed by someone.

An interesting film combining acrophobia with mystery thriller.

  1. Disappointed with this review. Not up to par with others. You have really done so well with past reviews, so don’t let up now.

    • Will keep in mind; this one was not as deep in element as I thought I could write a review on, so I struggled to have quantity and quality at once. Might update this review later on.

  2. Hello.This article was extremely motivating, especially because I was browsing for thoughts on this topic last Tuesday.
