I'd never seen PARANOIAC before getting the new Hammer DVD set. I enjoyed it quite a bit and Oliver Reed gave a very interesting performance. I was surprised to find it was in black and white, but the plot, as well as the title, were clearly inspired by PSYCHO so I suppose Hammer decided to follow the visual look of it too. I thought it was a very engrossing story that kept you guessing. You never were sure where it was going and who was and wasn't crazy until, near the end. The ending itself was a little abrupt leaving you to wonder what will happen to some of the characters, but all in all, a nice unexpected treat in the set of mostly familiar films.
