Repulsion | Horror Movie

This is a great horror flick by the director Roman Polanski, a man who proved that you don’t need jump scares and monsters to create a truly terrifying film. That is the case with the 1965 film Repulsion.

Repulsion is considered as one of the best psychological horrors out there. In the movie, we follow the story about Carol, played by actress Catherine Deneuve, a woman who is repulsed by everything sexual. She lives with her sister; but when her sister leaves, Carol sinks into depression and she is devastated by horrifying visions and hallucinations.
