Edge of Fury – 1958 – United States

Made in 1953 and released in 1958, Edge of Fury is an obscure psychological crime drama. After a disturbed veteran is ejected from a mental hospital for financial reasons, he befriends an old widow. He convinces her to rent a seaside cottage and moves in with the widow and her lovely daughters. The older daughter ridicules him, but the younger daughter falls for him. He responds violently to their attentions, frustrated by his own sexual urges. He fantasizes about an impossibly idyllic family life with the three women. The women grow resentful of his overbearing personality as he becomes increasingly possessive, culminating in a murderous psychopathic episode.
