Pretty Poison 1968 ★★★

Anthony Perkins manages another Norman Bates-like role in this OK thriller about a delusional arsonist who arrives in a new town and tricks a local girl into thinking he’s a CIA spy only to discover she may be more crazy than he is. It’s a mostly interesting film that features slid performances by Perkins and Tuesday Weld as his teenage lover, but it peaks early and never quite recovers.
