Hollywood or Bust
21 March 2010 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

According to the DVD description, "It's the final curtain call for several young models as they audition for the roles of their lives. When Hollywood video director Michael Terrence (Christopher Atkins) films some of Hollywood's promising actresses, they find themselves caught in his own private fantasy of murder and desire. As he struggles between love for his latest discovery (Vali Ashton) and his dark desire for her sexy friend Gabrielle, the body count rises…"

Let's stop beating around the bush… This film isn't going to "keep you on the edge of your seat" as much as it's going to get a rise out of your jeans. To put it bluntly, the BOOBS are BEAUTIFUL. And, BIG. The highlight comes early; in the opening sequence, with marvelous Melanie Good (as Sheila Walsh) doing a strip tease, exposing an exquisite set, and being duck-taped to death by Mr. Atkins. Nothing really equals this, but there are more breasts to behold.

"Die Watching" is so named because Mr. Atkins' serial killer films his victims as he ends their lives - this way, they can see themselves dying. And, you should know, the murders (of the women, at least) are not bloody. So, you can enjoy director Charles Davis' erotic presentation of females squirming around in bondage without the messy end evident in most other thrillers. On a more artistic level, watch how Davis links Atkins' eyes with his victims' nipples.

If you're looking for Atkins in sexualized role, this really isn't your best shot. Davis is focused mainly on the women; and, although Atkins (of "The Blue Lagoon") is obviously an attractive man, he is not given the sexy treatment he usually gets. Instead, you can see him act. Atkins carries the film through unbelievable plot developments, and convincingly gives his character the likable creepiness called for in the script. Yes, Christopher can play a psycho killer.
