Product description

Cinema is full of neurotic personalities, but few things are more transfixing than a woman losing her mind onscreen. Unlike her male counterpart, the female neurotic lives a shamed existence, making these films rare places where her destructive emotions get to play. 'House of Psychotic Women' is an examination of these characters through a daringly autobiographical lens.
