Buchanan gets 'artsy'...God forbid...
14 September 2003 | by (fabulous Las Vega$!) – See all my reviews

A very tired and embarrassed looking Les Tremayne portrays Death himself in this misfired shot at a Bergman homage, courtesy of legendary schlock-slinger Larry Buchanan.

Death has come for a lovely small town girl(Monica Gayle) who has barely had a chance to experience life, but grants her a single day more to live. What she wants to do over the course of that day is hardly a big surprise...

This lowbrow sexploitation outing is fodder for a few good laughs at the film's bootless attempt to transcend the meretricious nature of its foundations. The decidedly unsubtle material is pitched with a gauzy, soft-lense pisselegance which labors awkwardly to be ennobled by poetic Left Bank sensitivities. The results are decidedly more grindhouse than art-house(which is just fine, as I see it).

Pretty rare, and pretty likely to stay that way. 4/10
