One of the cinema's greatest suspense masterpieces, Henri-Georges Clouzot's Les Diaboliques made such an impression on Alfred Hitchcock that he borrowed its writers for Vertigo and attempted to recreate its clammy, seedy atmosphere in Psycho, substituting a motel-room shower for a boarding-school bathtub.

Véra Clouzot and Simone Signoret are the wife and mistress of sadistic headmaster Paul Meurisse. When his unpleasant games go too far, they hatch the perfect plot to get rid of him: they drown him in the bath and dump him in the overgrown and evil-smelling pool, agreeing to claim that it was an accident. But when they have it drained, the body has vanished, and that's when nerves really start jangling - especially when they spot increasingly hard-to-ignore signs that he might still be alive. Worse, a retired police inspector (Charles Vanel) takes pity on the bereaved widow and offers to help track her husband down...

 A diabolically great film

This is as dark and relentless a piece of suspense as you will ever encounter. Over fifty years after it was made it remains one of the cinema's most terrifying films, supported by a score even more menacing than Psycho's. Definitely not for those of a nervous disposition!
