1975 • Spain • Directed by Juan Antonio Bardem
Chris Miller (former Spanish child star, Marisol) lives with her stepmother Ruth (Jean Seberg; Breathless) in a large secluded mansion in the countryside. Both women have been traumatized by the mysterious disappearance of Chris' father but their isolation is soon interrupted by the arrival of a mysterious young drifter, Barney (Barry Stokes; Prey), who they take on as a handyman. All the while, an Unknown scythe wielding killer has been stalking the area, leaving an ever growing body count, and it's not long before the women grow increasingly suspicious of Barney... A bloody and twist filled giallo from acclaimed filmmaker Juan Antonio Bardem (Death of a Cyclist), THE CORRUPTION OF CHRIS MILLER has remained one of the hardest to see of all Spanish produced gialli. Lushly photographed by Juan Gelpi (Crypt of the Living Dead) and scored by Waldo de los Rios (House That Screamed).
