The Climax


Watch The Climax (1944)

Dr. Hohner (Karloff), theater doctor at the Vienna Royal Theater, murders his lover, the star soprano, when jealousy drives him to an insane obsession. Ten years later, another young singer (Foster) Hohner recalls a late diva and his old mania begins. Hohner wants to prevent her from singing someone other than him, even if it means silencing her forever. The singer's fiancee (Bey) hurries to save her at the climax of the film.

Definitely movie from my personal top 10 of best movies ever. I will grant that my expectations were very low before seeing this movie. The soundtrack is very good too. There are some scenes in this movie that I will remember them until I die. The direction is sublime. Excellent photos, tempo and editing. I'm not a true fan of Horror, but I'm like that too!. The Climax is one of the best possible choice for a saturday evening with cinema.
