Movie Info

Larry (Anthony Perkins) is not someone it is wise to cross, as his wife Frances (Jill Ireland) discovers. In this English-language French melodrama/thriller, Larry uses his skills as a neurologist and brain surgeon in an attempt to manipulate a hapless amnesiac (Charles Bronson) into murdering his wife and her lover. The amnesiac was found on a beach along with the body of a dead woman, and he is already suspected of her murder--why not add another to the list?

Ungainly and unappealing.

November 30, 2019 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…

[Charles] Bronson truly surprises as a blank slate amnesiac known only as The Stranger, confused and malleable to the sick whims of [Anthony] Perkins' Dr. Laurence Jeffries.

Someone Behind the Door is a good idea in need of a script writer.

Audience Reviews for Someone Behind the Door


A good story and actors, but the film quality is horrible. The technical side of it ruins the movie. I'd still say that if you like the actors you should check it out anyway.
