Summary One of the all-time great Hollywood chillers! A murderer is targeting disabled young women in a New England town, and Helen, a mute servant in a Gothic mansion, is terrified she's next. Mrs. Warren, the invalid, bullying mistress of the house, warns Helen to leave at once, rather than rely on her weak son and stepson for protection. But even as Helen is packing her things, she suspects she may be too late and the murderer is closer than she ever imagined.
