Please blow up that Mansion of Boredom
9 February 2009 | by (the Doomed Megalopolis of Blasphemous Technoids) – See all my reviews

I stumbled upon this one in some store where people drop off stuff they don't want anymore (second-hand goodies, that is). A VHS tape for a measly 50 cents. Charles Napier and Joanna Pacula had me saying "Why not?". Watched it with a friend. It was dull and irritating, so the only thing that made it worthwhile was us making stupid comments while watching it (I'll spare you guys the details).

In short: Do yourselves a favor and never watch this, even if you're a fan of Pacula and/or Charles Napier. Pacula has a lot of screen time, but completely nothing to do. She has a shower-scene, but the viewer will find himself staring at the naked body of a stand-in model. Charles Napier plays a detective who has even less to do. He's hardly in the movie.

It's just about two couples inside a mansion (one guy is a doctor who experimented on one of his mental patients), doing too much talking, whining and weeping. The insane escaped mental patient, who is stalking the house, is a completely pathetic character with a retarded hair-do and silly-looking 'gympies' on his feet. He only starts acting up in the final act of the film. The composer must have thought he was writing a score for the next BASIC INSTINCT or something. Hearing his music in this snooze-fest made it an even dumber experience.

The climax, as to be expected, was equally pathetic (out the mansion, into the rainstorm, onto some wooden bridge). However, two wonderful bonuses to this movie come in the form of that blond chick, exposing and caressing her nice breasts due to a traumatizing experience caused by sexual molestation during her early teens. Yes, you can go "WTF?!?!" for this one.

The sad part is, that EYES OF THE BEHOLDER isn't even that badly made on a technical level. I'll let it earn some points for that (and the blond chick, of course). But it still remains a waste of time, mainly.

Respect to rsoonsa from California for having cooked up that one (and only, so far) much more decent user-comment than mine. I just couldn't put any more effort into it.
