Two Fuller Classics. - Shock Corridor review by Steve Mason

Spoiler Alert
27/11/2012

Shock Corridor is peak period, ex newsman Fuller's allegory of a reporter who enters a mental hospital in search of a killer. Naked Kiss is a tabloidesque shocker about an ex-jailbird's attempt to go straight in a small, conservative, American town. Both are outstanding.
