Blu-ray Review - Corruption

CORRUPTION Peter Cushing

The cover art for the "Corruption" Blu-ray contains an illustration of star Peter Cushing pinning a woman to the ground, slashing her throat with a knife while staring out expressionlessly, as though this act of ultraviolence was all in a day's work. It's disturbing, selling the movie as first class ticket to exploitation nirvana, promising a picture that's unhinged and excessive. Turns out, "Corruption" isn't that extreme, at least by today's standards, emerging not as a careless rampage, but as an engaging chiller with some sense of taste between brutal killings. For the most part, the feature is satisfactorily plotted, with superb performances from Cushing and co-stay Sue Lloyd, who manage to elevate the unseemly appetites of the script with a great deal of class, turning cheap theatrics into an absorbing depiction of manipulation and guilt-stained murder.
