Michael Gough collects killing tools and has a stooge use them
Nice color, decent production, not a bad story, so what is wrong with this movie? It has way too much dialog, and that causes awkward scenes that go on too long and drain tension from the film. The scenes that should be suspenseful are not, and that's attributable to the director. I like Michael Gough a lot, and he delivers his prolix lines as only he can, but being so long, his harangues become tiresome. There are a few scenes that are painfully awkward, and they include the scene where Gough breaks up with his blonde girl friend and they argue interminably. The script suffers by not exploring Gough's motivations and by being rather disjointed. Even the museum of weapons and its contents are not exploited for their chill value. The movie uses surprise in the method of killing as its main element, but these moments are very fleeting and sustain no suspense. The supporting roles are handled pretty much colorlessly. This movie is a misfire, despite its glossy appearance and production values.
