Die! Die! My Darling! (1965)

A very fun campy movie. Pat Carroll (Stephanie Powers) is a beautiful young woman. She is about to be married but while on vacation in the English countryside she has some unfinished business to attend to. She had been engaged to Stephen Trefoile but he died before they were married. She is going to visit his mother (Tallulah Bankhead) and tell her of her plans to be married. When she arrives at the estate she realizes that Mrs Trefoile is a religious zealot who believes that for Stephen to remain in heaven Pat must remain chaste for the rest of her life. Pat attempts to leave but Mrs Trefoile is not about to let that happen. She holds Pat prisoner in her attic and tries to show her the error of her ways. Will Pat be able to escape before Mrs Trefoile takes it to far?

This was not the best movie but it was fun. Bankhead was terrific as the zealot who worries for her son's eternal soul. Look for a young Donald Sutherland as the mentally challenged farm hand. If you like campy fun movies you will really enjoy this one.
