The film's poster.

Diabolique is a 1996 American film directed by Jeremiah S. Chechik and written by Henri-Georges Clouzot and Don Roos. It stars Sharon Stone, Isabelle Adjani and Chazz Palminteri. It is a remake of the 1955 French film Les Diaboliques.

The film was rated R by the Motion Picture Association of America for violence and terror, sexuality and bad language.


The wife and mistress of a cruel school master collaborate in a carefully planned and executed attempt to murder him. The plan goes well until the body, which has been strategically dumped, disappears. The strain starts to tell on the two women as a retired police investigator who is looking into the disappearance on a whim begins to think that they know more than they are telling, and further complications arise when their victim is seen, apparently alive and well by several of the pupils.
