Sudden Fear ★★★★

Film #5 of Scavenger Hunt #34 - January 2018
Task #24 'A film that you expect to be bad, but you really want to see it anyway.'
My full list here.

I honestly expected Sudden Fear to be a schlocky horror melodrama (mostly based on the poster) and it turned out to be an incredibly well crafted noir thriller. Joanie in that silk scarf ready to kill a man... seriously good cinema. Loved the end sequence in particular, definite Third Man/Mildred Pierce vibes.
