‘Diary of a Madman,’ directed by Reginald LeBorg

Movie, 1963

Vincent Price horror, in which possession by murderous spirits, the focus of the law and a scheming social climber all come together to reasonably good effect. This is a film where things are all fairly understated and the plotting are fairly simple, and while there’s nothing essential to see here, the plot zips along quite nicely and the various characters all play out their fairly inevitable arcs with a reasonable level of aplomb. The film is, however, pretty much all about Vincent Price, however, and even in some of the creakier scenes where he struggles against the budget, he holds the thing together pretty well.
