NotesA woman is blinded after falling from her horse. When she returns home she is determined to be independent. But at her uncle's home where she lives everyone has been murdered. Unaware of this she looks around the house and then decides to have a siesta and chooses to do this next to her dead niece. Only on waking and after a horse ride with her boyfriend does she start to discover the bodies. Bert the gardener is still alive though shot and she realises the killer is still nearby. She escapes on a horse but falls and then walks very competently through woodland until she comes to a gypsy camp. Only the killer's cowboy boots are seen. Some have found this a terrifying, suspenseful film, personally I think it's load of nonsense. Mia Farrow as the blind woman merely affects a blank stare (there is no damage to her eyes as per usual in films) and simply looks rather pathetic. Her blindness must be total (another characteristic of movies) because he cannot tell if the room light is on. Also she must have lost her sense of smell with all those bodies around. But what should amaze most viewers is the ease with which she moves around. Of course this in no way decreases the sheer terror of blind woman versus mass murderer. This is pulp fiction and not by Hammett, Chandler or Tarentino.
