More observations: Of the Hammer Films, The Devil's Bride
and Plague of Zombies
are particularly worth checking out, especially if you've never seen them before. And The Seventh Victim
is one of my favorite Val Lewton movies, although I remain convinced that the movie is confused about who the actual protagonist is.
The movie is told from the POV of Kim Hunter's character, a sheltered young woman searching for her missing, more worldly sister amidst the bohemian decadence of, er, Greenwich Village, but you can make a case that it's really the sister's story.
(SF alert. Kim Hunter, who plays the young ingenue, is better known to genre fans as Dr. Zira in the original Planet of the Apes
