    Wow

    I've been a fan of both Ingrid Berman and Gregory Peck for awhile now, which is why I decided to watch this. Naturally, their performances were epic. With a suspenseful plot and Hitchcock directing, this film is a must see.

    Spellbound

    Ingrid Bergman and Gregory Peck are perfectly cast in this outstanding picture. The acting is superb! The chemistry between Ingrid and Gregory is felt! The story line is wonderful! It is full of passion! Full of romance. I love it. This is my favourite picture of all time!

    Spellbound

    This Alfred Hitchcock movie, while watchable, is not in the same class as Notorious, Vertigo, Shadow of a Doubt, Rebecca, Rear Window, or the like. The dubious psychoanalytic plot strand is very threadbare and quite dated. By comparison, the psychological aspect of Vertigo, though equally spurious in its way, is indelible and convincing beyond any consideration of probability. Gregory Peck is uninolving and somewhat wooden as the lead. Even Ingrid Bergman is not as good here as she is in other roles, perhaps because she is miscast as a rather frigid psychoanalyst. Hitchcock's films usually have a humorous side, but this one really seems to take itself seriously, and there is very little of Hitchcock's characteristic jocularity, so evident in The Lady Vanishes, Rear Window, North By Northwest and even in Notorious, to name just a few. Hitchcock's sense of humor is usually pretty obvious, but it seems to grow on one.

    A Mystery Within a Mystery

    SPELLBOUND is classic Hitchcock: a mystery within a mystery/ the wrong man pursued by police/ outstanding set pieces including Salvador Dali dream sequences/ and forbidden romance. The plot twists and psychological imagery are abundant with unrelenting suspense as the story unfolds.

    The real 'Psycho' -logical thriller

    This is an amazing psychological thriller. This is Hitchcock at his best. This movie isn't one of his most popular, nevertheless, it is one of my favorites. He uses the help of Salvador Dali to design a dream sequence that will blow you out of the water. This is an artist work that keeps you in suspense. Again, Hitchcock uses his mastery of ultra-realism to keep the audiences attention and desire to find out what happens.
