    Screaming Mimi
    Two years before Hitchcock terrified audiences with the shower scene from Psycho, audiences recoiled at the shower scene in this dark and decidedly twisted psychological thriller. The tale of terror centers on an exotic dancer (Anita Ekberg) who is terrorized by a knife-wielding homicidal maniac. She is cut up but not seriously hurt as her step brother bursts into the bathroom and shoots the killer before he finishes. Unfortunately, the slasher escapes. Time passes, and while the physical wounds, heal, the psychic wounds continue to haunt the poor dancer, who must go to a psychiatrist for help. When a reporter hears about the case, he suspects the work of a serial killer and starts investigating. He finds that each of the killer's victims are given a horrifying sculpture of a woman screaming. Meanwhile, the girl's doctor finds himself falling in love with her. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi
