House by the River

One of Fritz Lang's deathly constructs: a patently artificial period melodrama about an author (Hayward) who strangles his wife's maid and implicates his brother (Bowman) in the crime. It's a bleak, gloomy film, one in which the psychological undercurrents seem to be flooding over the banks, drowning any fleeting vestige of rationality in a perverse Teutonic romanticism.
