Wonderful Little 'B' movie noir (if there is such a thing)
27 February 2003 | by (Hong Kong) – See all my reviews

This is an excellent little B-movie that takes place over the course of a few days at a place called Cady's Lodge.

The story revolves around several characters gathering at said lodge to mark time until the execution of a certain bad seed by the name of Frankie Pierce, who is receiving his just desserts one Friday evening down the road at the local penitentiary. The characters are all there for their own reasons and everything plays out to its logical conclusion.

The acting is bad; the dialogue even worse - "you tryin' to give me the creeps!?" and "rain or shine, one glass of beer."

But, for some bizarre reason the movie holds you with its genuineness at being nothing more or nothing less than 70 minutes of good old B-movie mystery.
