One of the greatest psychological thrillers ever made, DIABOLIQUE focuses on the browbeaten wife (Vera Clouzot) of a brutal schoolmaster and his tough-as-nails mistress (Simone Signoret) as they team up to murder their mutual tormentor, but that’s only the beginning of this edge-of-your-seat affair. ,

A twisting, turning shocker that still holds up today as one of the all-time classics of suspense, Diabolique features a sardonic Charles Vanel as the poker-faced inspector. Legend has it that Clouzot beat Hitchcock to the punch by only an hour in sewing up rights to the original novel by Pierre Boileau.
