The Rabid Dog’s House is a recurring feature at Wicked Horror where contributor Justin Steele uncovers hidden gems, lost classics, and overlooked indie offerings. Flying solo or with the occasional guest, he will discuss an array of topics covering film, literature, and television. Check out the latest installment below. In this episode we’re looking back at the polarizing Diabolique (1996 remake)!
Diabolique stars Sharon Stone and Isabelle Adjani as the mistress and wife (respectively) of a cruel headmaster (Chazz Palminteri). A plan is devised to do away with their abusive lover. The seemingly flawless plan soon dissolves into mystery and suspense. The film also stars Kathy Bates as a private investigator that believes everyone is guilty.
Join me and special guest star Zena Dixon below as we talk about 1996’s well-paced and divisive Diabolique.
