Jack Lord provides a commendable performance here as a Hungarian drifter roaming the desolate American southwest. Offered lodging by three odd sisters and their equally odd mother(who are operating a last-chance gas station in a nearly abandoned town), all initially seems well enough...but little by little, bizarre secrets are revealed, and a mystery unfolds which puts our hero in mortal danger. Deceit and seduction play him like a fiddle from hell, and all parties are suspect.
Effectively eerie in a strange, evanescent way, THE NAME OF THE GAME IS KILL draws great benefit from a creditable music score and some surprisingly creative location filming by pre-famed Vilmos Zsigmond.
A pretty elusive second-string flick which has all but disappeared since its initial theatrical run, grey-market copies circulating online tend to be terribly washed-out. Sadly, that will just have to suffice ad interim until a much-anticipated legit release is brought forward. Give it a whirl, especially if you enjoy delirious 60s relics the likes of SPIDER BABY, LADY IN A CAGE, WHO KILLED TEDDY BEAR, and ANGEL, ANGEL, DOWN WE GO.
