Bunny Lake is Missing (1965)
Director: Otto Preminger
Main Stars: Keir Dullea, Carol Lynley, Laurence Olivier
Storyline: A woman reports her daughter is missing but there is evidence that she ever existed
Review (Spoils): Anne Lake (Carol Lynley) moves to England with her daughter Bunny. She goes to pick her up after school and finds out nobody have seen or heard of Bunny. The police force of England cannot even find a record of the little girl and start to question Anne’s sanity. Even when the police question Anne’s brother (Keir Dullea) claims Bunny never existed but possibly was an imaginary friend when Anne was young.
This film is a great mind game, she Anne nuts or not is the question through the whole film. This leads to the twisted truth of the Lake family. This film plays the Alfred Hitchcock type feel. Not over haunting but spooky in the way the mind works.
Rating: Need a chance in your horror diet this one creepy film. Do not expect gore, monsters, ghosts or even jumps instead it leads in the mystery of the mind much like What Ever Happened to Baby Jane…?
