Roman Polanski followed up his international breakthrough Knife in the Water with this controversial, chilling tale of psychosis.
Catherine Deneuve is Carol, a fragile, frigid young beauty cracking up in her London flat when left alone by her vacationing sister. She is soon haunted by spectres real and imagined, and her insanity grows to a violent, hysterical pitch.
Thanks to its disturbing detail and Polanski's adeptness at turning claustrophobic space into an emotional minefield, Repulsion is a surreal, mind-bending odyssey into personal horror, and it remains one of cinema's most shocking psychological thrillers.
Repulsion is given the Criterion treatment and released on Blu-ray 22nd May 2023 from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment.
