Despite the thrill of surfing the biggest wave he's ever encountered, Johnson quickly discovers just how treacherous things can get when you decide to challenge Mother Nature's majesty.
"No matter where you watch 180° South, you're bound to feel a little trapped and in need of a vacation, preferably a long one, to a beautiful piece of open country."

In this classic French horror film the wife of a cruel headmaster and his mistress conspire to kill him, but after the murder is committed, his body disappears, and strange events begin to plague the two women.

-Bosley Crowther, NY Times, November 22, 1955
