Today on Trailers from Hell, film editor Mark Helfrich talks French director Jean Becker's 1983 thriller "One Deadly Summer," starring Isabelle Adjani as a woman on the verge.

Several years after her remarkable performance as the star-crossed Adele Hugo in Truffaut's "The Story of Adele H.," Isabelle Adjani essayed yet another young woman gripped by obsession in 1983's "One Deadly Summer." The story, about an unstable femme fatale's revenge against her mother's attackers has a definite exploitation bent but the presence of Adjani and the score by Georges Delerue elevate the proceedings. Adjani won a Cesar for her trouble and the film was France's second highest grossing film of the year. NSFW.
