Details

Before Psycho, Peeping Tom, and Repulsion, there was Diabolique. This thriller from Henri‑Georges Clouzot, which shocked audiences in Europe and the U.S., is the story of two women—the fragile wife and the willful mistress of the sadistic headmaster of a boys’ boarding school—who hatch a daring revenge plot. With its unprecedented narrative twists and terrifying images, Diabolique is a heart-grabbing benchmark in horror filmmaking, featuring outstanding performances by Simone Signoret, Véra Clouzot, and Paul Meurisse.

  • New digital restoration, with uncompressed monaural soundtrack on the Blu-ray edition
  • Selected-scene commentary by French-film scholar Kelley Conway
  • New video introduction by Serge Bromberg, codirector of Henri-Georges Clouzot’s “Inferno”
  • New video interview with novelist and film critic Kim Newman
  • Original theatrical trailer
  • PLUS: An essay by film critic Terrence Rafferty
