Nothing is quite what it seems in the 1963 Paranoiac, a riveting, complex tale of greed, dementia and deceit from Hammer Films, directed by Freddie Francis.

Rescued from a suicide attempt by a man claiming to be her long-dead brother, a young heiress (Janette Scott, The Day Of The Triffids) finds a new reason to live. But her relatives have doubts. They think “Tony” (Alexander Davion) is an imposter who’s trying to get his hands on the family fortune. Everyone has their own secret reasons to suspect Tony, as well as their own designs on his vast inheritance – especially brother Simon (Oliver Reed, The Brood)  a magnetic but devastatingly cruel wretch who’ll stop at nothing to thwart the supposed pretender.
