Introduction by Foster Hirsch!
Legendary for its influence but wildly underseen, this skin-crawling thriller from Mervyn LeRoy stars Patty McCormack as Rhoda, a creepily perky eight-year-old girl who also happens to be a bit of a sociopathic murderess. Let’s just say you better hope you don’t beat Rhoda out for any prizes.
