Well, since I bring up side subjects, I have already seen it a bunch of times.

But I still enjoy it. In my opinion, one of the better Fridays.

I enjoyed the cheesiness of the 3D and the fact that this viewing kept reminding me of Brad's review of the flick. And of course a few good kills.

The killerís brutal and misogynistic M.O. is eclipsed, only by his bizarre tendency to taunt the police in a ď Donald Duck voice ď as they race to catch him before the body count rises.

Oh man, they sure donít make Ďem like they used to. This is one of THE prime examples of sleaze the genre has to offer, and its fuckiní great! The absurdity of a killer that quacks as ( to quote the movieís coroner )
Ē He used a blade. Stuck it up her joy trail, and slit her wide open ď manages to be both extremely graphic and hilarious at the same time. The fact that every guy in this flick is a scumfuck degenerate to some extent ( even the hero detective ) whom treat women somewhere between bad and like shit, works as excellent commentary reflective of the times and still manages to ring true to this day unfortunately. Itís a grimy, disturbing, and nasty little film that pulls no punches in itís portrayal of abuse and violence towards women in all its forms, set to a rockiní score by Francesco De Masi.

The only real downfall of the film, is in its whodunnit plot point. The killerís identity is easy to decipher, as the handful of characters we are introduced to sport only one obvious red herring, and heís too damn obvious to be it ( though he is a cock smoker... You have to watch it, lol.) and thatís not to mention that the back of the box literally shows the murderer attacking our heroine... Fucking oops.

Overall, if youíre in the mood for a giallo that is more mystery and atmosphere, maybe check out Argentoís Profondo Rosso or Fulciís Donít Torture a Duckling. But, if youíre looking for something thatís light on plot, but big on gore and the kind of sleaze that makes you wanna take a shower afterwards, this is one of the very best there is.

Rating: 8 body part fetching dogs, out of 10
How did you find this film?

City of the Living Dead is the only film that I turned off before the end. I was 12 at the time. Found the gore too much. A priest hung himself and then came back as a zombie tearing someone's brain out of their head. I'd like to watch it again as it's probably more comical than scary. A bit like The Evil Dead. Found that frightening when I watched it as a kid but generally laugh at it today

I kinda liked Part 3D too. I like to kid about the Friday the 13ths, but I thought 1 and 2 were decent for slashers, but I also still think they are pretty silly, and basically formulaic repetitive hacks to say something like Halloween.

It was probably hard for Sam Rami and Bruce Campbell to play it straight. There's a wire of funny running through it.

Well, a good formula makes being formulaic less bad imo. Then again, I also love Murder, She Wrote, which is about as formulaic as it gets.

Knightriders, 1981. 6/10

Director: George A. Romero






Stephen King makes a cameo in George Romeroís Knightriders cuz they were working on the Creepshow script.

THE MIDNIGHT HOUR 1985


Made-for-tv. Cute film about a group of teens that steal costumes from a museum and inadvertently bring the dead back to life on Halloween. Shari Belafonte...

Agreed. The original version is much better than 'Lucas' additions version'. Good that he restored it, but I sure hope they have an unaltered refurbished edition.

The new 'Lucas edition' doesn't flow as well. Some things are OK, like seeing some outside shots of Mos Eisley, but they aren't necessary. The scene with Han and Jabba the Hut is horrible and jarringly out of place. Of course the worst crime is reversing Han shooting Greedo first. Not saying Han wasn't justified to shoot first, but it's a story of character development/change and redemption. You don't want to start Han as a saint.

Anyway, I think New Hope is a great film, and the best one. I think Mark Hamill gave a stellar performance the makes it all work.
What I think Lucas doesn't get -and WISH He would get-in despite what he sees as flaws, the fact is SO MANY PEOPLE love, flaws and all those first three films (SW, EMPIRE, JEDI) as they are. It's similar to the old adage, "If it ain't Broke, Don't fix it"
