Canceled Too Soon #165: Mistress of Suspense, a.k.a. Chillers (1990)


Anthony Perkins hosts a series of sinister stories in MISTRESS OF SUSPENSE, an anthology based entirely on the works of Patricia Highsmith, the author of STRANGERS ON A TRAIN and THE TALENTED MR. RIPLEY. With an all-star cast that includes Ian Holm, Ian Richardson, Ian McShane and Niccol Williamson, MISTRESS OF SUSPENSE - or, as it was called in America, CHILLERS - is an unusual entry in the horror anthology genre, in which the supernatural doesn't seem to exist... except maybe in a rooster.

Did MISTRESS OF SUSPENSE deserve to fade into obscurity, or was it... CANCELED TOO SOON? Film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold explore its extremely British tales of murder and madness in an all-new episode of the podcast, which kicks off GHASTLYTOBER... our Halloween celebration of short-lived horror shows!

Give it a listen!
