A sadistic prep school headmaster terrorizes his students, brutalizes his wife, and beats his mistress. The two abused women drown Delassalle in a bathtub and dump his body in a swimming pool. But when the pool is drained, no corpse is found. The murderesses panic, driven to wits' end as they try to discover what really happened to Delassalle. Henri Clouzot's horror classic is an acknowledged influence on Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho.
