Friday night time-waster...
13 March 2004 | by (the Draconian Swamp of Unholy Souls) – See all my reviews

I hate the TV-stations in my country...they never stick to their schedule, for Christ's sake! Last friday, they announced to broadcast Jess Franco's Female Vampire (which is a Eurohorror/cult highlight) and we got this thing instead!?!

Lady in Waiting is pure routine from every viewpoint. The plot handles about a divorced police detective (who's also a drunkard) investigating a series of murders on prostitutes. Really, is this the synopsis of all erotic thrillers??? Beautiful girls are found strangled by a veil, and he suspects the new husband of his ex-wife...Afraid that he might lose his son he tries to warn bla bla bla...bla bla bla! Do you care? No, didn't think so. We all know these ultra-thin plots are just an excuse to show as much ravishing female flesh as humanly possible. Responsible for that is Shannon Whirry! I'm not familiar with her repertoire, but it seems very interesting, containing other promising titles like "Dangerous Prey" and "Animal Instincts" ...1 AND 2! Sure, she has an impressive (fake) body, but I didn't particularly think she was beautiful. There was another girl starring in this film who was a lot cuter and prettier...but the poor thing got slaughtered after 3 minutes of screentime. She stripped and then she died. To my surprise, Lady in Waiting (by the way...this film is also known under the imaginative title "Hollywood Madam") does star a couple of famous and interesting names. Robert Costanzo (you'll know him when you see him) as the plump 'n funny partner who naturally dies and none other than William Devane as the good-hearted lieutenant. Stupid and embarrassing movie that mock the viewer's intelligence level.
