As Cathryn (Susannah York) seems a bit on the jumpy side of late in their city home, her husband Hugh (Rene Auberjonois) decides to take her to their country home - where she spent most of her childhood - in the middle of nowhere in Ireland, where there's no telephone, no unwanted visitors, no nothing to upset her. But whatever's wrong with Cathryn only gets worse, as first she's visited by Rene (Marcel Bozzuffi), an ex-lover of hers who she might have killed or who might only be a figment of her imagination, then Marcel (Hugh Millais), who she actually had an affair with, stops by and wants to rekindle the romance, and she simply can't find the strength to send him to the Devil because of his 12 year old daughter Susannah (Cathryn Harrison), whom she has grown attached to (and vice versa). This soon leads to tons of confusion, including Cathryn not knowing anymore who she has met and when, and who she actually had sex with and not - picture book schizophrenia in a word, only heightened by the fact that she frequently has visions of herself wandering the countryside before her own naked eye. Eventually, Cathryn finds a rather martial solution to get things back on track again, she kills all those she considers mere mirages that cloud her clear vision - thing is, her vision indeed isn't very clear, and at times she might hit the wrong one ...


Now the premise of Images, while maze-like and always with a surprise up its sleeve, is actually psycho-horror staple, and has been adapted with various degrees of success - both on the narrative and the directorial side - plenty of times before and since. But what makes this movie stand out of the crowd is that it really succeeds on both the directorial and acting side of things: The direction is truly flawless (not that one would have expected differently from Robert Altman) and employs understatement and even irony where spectacle could have achieved only half the effect. And the acting is for a genre movie of the time uncharacteristically natural and relatable, and thus works like a charm in bringing the movie's point across.

This being Robert Altman's only horror movie, one's left wondering what else he could have done with/for the genre - definitely worth a look!
