A pure chiller from the master of suspense, Alfred Hitchcock, about a woman who steals a large quantity of cash and makes a run for it on an abandon highway. She makes the dreadful mistake of staying the night in an isolated motel where she meets her untimely death being stabbed in the shower. This psychological thriller was put on a very low budget and is, arguably, Alfred Hitchcock's best! Watch for Ted Knight toward the end of the film, looking rather suspiciously into the camera, who later became known as Ted Baxter from the Mary Tyler Moore Show.
