Classic CrawfordReviewed byamhnorrisVote: 8/10

Wow, where to begin with 'Strait-Jacket'? First of all, people who aren't keen on either Crawford or 60's horror movies shouldn't, and probably wouldn't, bother with this in the first place. That being said, its great fun. Joan Crawford is the film's main - perhaps only - asset. Crawford is considered by many now as a camp icon. This does her a great disservice because it undervalues her talents as an actress. Quite simply, she was the greatest (female) movie star. One of the best - and paradoxically saddest - things about Crawford was that whatever she was in, she always gave maximum efforts to her performance. This is sad because a movie like this isn't really worthy of the depth that she adds to the character. Adding Mildred Pierce-level emotion to 'Strait-Jacket' is almost tragic to watch if you think about how her career had gone. One of the trademarks of a truly great actor is the ability to rise above the material, and Crawford certainly does this here, cranking up the acting-ometer up to 150.

'Strait-Jacket' certainly compares well with others in its genre. Personally, I found it a lot more enjoyable that 'Whatever Happened...' perhaps because Bette Davis wasn't in it. It may not have the subtext of 'Baby Jane' or 'Lady in a Cage' but, no other words to really explain it, it is simply more fun to watch.

A full throttle plunge into dementia!!!!Reviewed bytamstratVote: 4/10

For die-hard Crawford fan's this movie is an absolute hoot!!!! To see our gal Joanie decked out in the horrible wig with bangs to the jangling bracelets, it's a camp classic. Joan plays a woman who catches her young husband in bed with another hoochie and murders them both with an AXE and is sent to the loony bin for a number of years. The fun starts when she is released and guess what, you got it, axe murders start up again, imagine that????? Only Crawford could deliver banal lines with a completely straight face and she does give it her all, but the movie is just too silly to be taken seriously. Please watch it if you are teetering on the brink of insanity.

Who says Castle couldn't direct?!?Reviewed byDavid-240Vote: 10/10

This is one of the most enjoyable horror films ever. The closing credits gag reveals the spirit of the picture - it is not to be taken seriously. By the way don't spoil a great laugh by reading what that gag is, in the "crazy credits" section. This is pure camp fun, played brilliantly by Joan Crawford in an Oscar worthy performance. The opening narration is hilarious - and Joan's get-up (black fright wig, clinging floral dress and clanging bangles) is outrageous. You'll probably guess the surprise ending - but that's not what this film is about. Besides the fun element there is also a subversive political statement - Castle sets his axe-murder horror on a sweet little farm, that looks like a set from a family sit-com. And the family that live in it are too good to be true as well. But all this is a facade, as insanity, lust and murder lie just below the surface.

Also of note in the cast are George Kennedy - excellent as the twisted handy-man, and Diane Baker as the perfect daughter. And apparently that's Lee Majors being hacked up at the start of the film. Castle does a brilliant directing job, but it's Joan's film all the way - what she can do with knitting and matches is truly amazing! And the scene where she attempts to seduce her daughter's boyfriend is nothing short of magic. I can't believe that an actress who could play this scene with such good humour, could have taken herself as seriously as "Mommie Dearest" suggests. Do not miss this over-looked classic.
