Schlockmeister William Castle ("House on Haunted Hill," "The Tingler") gets a tiny bit classier by casting Joan Crawford, hot off the success of hags-ploitation classic "What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?" Crawford plays a woman who kills her husband with an ax when she finds him in bed with another woman. She's sent away for 20 years and when she's released, tries to connect with her grown daughter. Needless to say, there are more ax murders. Like most Castle films, it's cheesy, chintzy and fun. Crawford is enjoyable batty and this could be a bizarro companion to Crawford's other famous mother-daughter movie, "Mildred Pierce." Look for George Kennedy as a sleazy farm hand.
