The Victim 1972
Elizabeth Montgomery (TV’s Bewitched, The Legend of Lizzie Borden) gives a brilliant dramatic performance in the nerve-jangling made-for-TV thriller The Victim.

Wealthy San Franciscan woman Kate is concerned about her sister Susan after their last conversation: Susan has just requested a divorce from her husband Ben and things aren’t going well. Kate gets in her car and drives close to 30 miles in treacherous stormy weather and is warned by police on the road that mudslides and flooding have closed most of the roads and that it would be best to turn back, but she forges ahead anyway. When she gets to Susan’s home – a big house on at least an acre of woodland – she’s perplexed that Susan appears not to be home, but it’s made clear to the audience that Susan is dead in a box in the basement. As a storm rages outside, Kate tries to figure out where her sister could have gone and places her own life in great danger...the killer is still on the premises!
