A Throwback to the Days of The ABC Movie of the Week
7 July 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

The ABC Movie of the Week was an unlikely art form; a kitschy grab bag of trash and treasure which might yeild Steven Spielberg's Duel or Satan's School for Girls and 'Whatever Happened to...' is a wonderful reminder of just how good and bad these films could be and the remarkable talent they routinely showcased. Here, David (Roots, Rich Man Poor Man) Greene directs stars Vanessa and Lynn Redgrave as the Hudson sisters in this tacky update of "Whatever Happened to Baby Jane?". Lynn, as Jane Hudson is a grotesque, haggish Raggedy Anne doll come to mentally defective life tormenting her crippled, long suffering sister while trying to reignite her fame on the drag queen club scene. It's never quite as good as you hope it will be or as scary but the cast carries it along to the bitter end. Ultimately, it's no better or worse than Bad Ronald or Killdozer or All the Kind Strangers or a score of other films to grace the ABC Movie of the Week. If you approach it in that light you may find yourself pleasantly surprised.
