Wile away the hours in Howell's not completely wasted pic
16 August 2013 | by (adelaide, australia) – See all my reviews

This film isn't half that bad. Howell who graduated to B movies many years, has also managed to direct a couple. He was a director and co writer on this one, where a couple of recognizable stars pop up, some who've been in hiding for so long. It's some pretty interesting casting here. What we have is Howell who's head of a fashion business, in partnership with his brother, comedian Anthony Clark, falling for a femme fatale, Shinas, a devious sex pot who has big plans to destroy Howell and take over his business. Dead bodies of employees, start appearing and Howell, who has a weakness for beautiful women, is a prime suspect, where it's a race against time, to find out who's the murderous hand. Some scenes here are completely unwarranted, but Hourglass has a style about it, and a quite interesting storyline, yet also a not such happy ending for Howell. Johhny Venocur is a laugh as one of Howell's, soon to be dead employees.
