She also starred in Roger Corman's Poe adaptation The Pit and the Pendulum, Michael Reeves' debut The She Beast and the Hammer horror Curse of the Crimson Altar. She became more selective in the 1970s appearing as the villainous prison warden in Jonathan Demme's debut Caged Heat and as the lonely lesbian Betts in David Cronenberg's Shivers.
