Retro Poster: "Thirteen Women" (1932)
What do you get when you mix thirteen women who are old college friends and sorority sisters? Depending on how dirty your mind is, the answer could easily be the plot to any number of porn flicks. But in the world of horror films, you get at least one other woman who feels victimized by their nastiness and hateful words so much so that she feels the need to exact revenge on them and their families. And how would said woman get revenge on these mean girls you ask? Perhaps by persuading a psychic to give these women readings about impending doom and death, which start to become true mainly through the mere suggestion. Such is the story behind "Thirteen Women", which is based on the novel of the same name by Tiffany Hayes. Interestingly enough, the film is most notable for the buzz it created around the time of its release when star Peg Entwistle, in an eerie parallel to the film, was found dead of apparent suicide.
