"Diabolique" deserves to be seen not just as a goad to Hitchcock and a precursor to "Psycho," but as a suspense milestone in its own right. Today's Criterion edition is the best way to see it. The misbegotten 1996 Hollywood remake, starring Sharon Stone, sullied the film's reputation instead of spawning new prints for revival houses. And this film requires precise visualization -- it is, hands down, the dankest movie of all time, as well as one of the creepiest. Water in mudholes, bathtubs, sinks and a swimming pool; medicines dispensed from eyedroppers and needles; doctored whiskey and even photo developer and news ink -- they all form an amniotic fluid that succors evil.
