(Silvio Narizzano, 1965)
Release date: 29 June 2020
Standard Edition Blu-ray

Directed by Silvio Narizzano (Georgy Girl), Fanatic, also known as Die! Die! My Darling, stars Hollywood great Tallulah Bankhead in her final film performance. She stars as the psychotic religious zealot Mrs Trefoile, who terrorises and imprisons her dead son’s fiancée Patricia (Stefanie Powers) and is determined to 'cleanse' her soul...

With a supporting cast that includes the ever-excellent Yootha Joyce, Peter Vaughn and a young Donald Sutherland in one of his earliest screen roles, Fanatic is a rich and disturbing thriller, powered by a superb Richard Matheson script and a power-house performance from the legendary Bankhead.
