Farley Granger and Dana Andrews in Edge of Doom

Edge of Doom is a 1950 film noir shot in black and white. The film has never been released on video reportedly due to the subject matter. The film is considered one of the bleakest films of the 1950s. The story concerns a young mentally disturbed man who goes on a rampage after his sick mother dies. One of the man's biggest beefs is with the Catholic church who, in addtion to slighting him when his mother needed a priest, once refused to bury his father years earlier because he commited sucide. The man, blaming the enviorment he lives in, goes on a rampage taking revenge on his cheap boss, a mortitation and a priest who refuses to give his poor mother a big funeral. He began his rampage by killing the hard-line Catholic priest who slighted him by beating him with a heavy crufix. Later, another priest suspects the young man, now arrested for another crime, for the killing.
