Wait Until Dark videotape box

Susie, a recently blinded woman is unwittingly in possession of a doll filled with drugs. A very mean narcotics dealer concocts an elaborate scheme to trick her into handing it over to him. The two crooks pretend to be an old friend of Susie's husband while her husband is away and together the crooks invent a story of a police investigation of her husband that only the discovery of the now missing doll can save him from. Susie's blindness is the key to them searching the apartment for the doll. A great psychological thriller with a twist: the audience knows exactly what's happening but gets to watch the heroine try to figure it out on her own. There's almost no explicit violence in this movie, yet there's an underlying current of foreboding and suspense that literally permeates the entire film. You know something very bad is going to happen. Alan Arkin gives the performance of a lifetime as the cool, calm, collected psychopath killer who truly enjoys hurting people. As his stalking of Susie becomes more and more obvious as the story unfolds, it leaves us with the question, how does a blind woman defend herself?
