Charlie's Angels: Hellride (1976)
Main Angel...Sabrina The story concerns the death of a female racing car driver and the angels attempt to find the truth. Sabrina goes undercover as a racing car driver and risks her life in a race to the truth.The other two angels are only really used as background characters (Jill as a religious girl, Kelly as a reporter. The other cast are also very good and we have Bloody Mary the real villain of the story and her male sidekick as well as the boyfriend of the murdered racing car driver. A good start to what would become one of the best shows on TV.The whole plot line of the angels having to learn to do different jobs would be a mainstay of all five seasons and added a lot to the charm of the show.
Qualcosa striscia nel buio (1971)
Holds Promise but fails to deliver
I recently watched this film and was really excited as i like films in an isolated place with ghosts etc. The film concerns f different groups of people (an upeerclass bickering couple, Two policemen and a captured felon, A doctor and his nurse and the house caretaker and his girlfriend)they all find themselves trapped in the gloomy mansion when the road they are travelling on is washed away during a bad rainstorm.They all have different agenda's and there stories intertwine but this film is just too talky with very little action it does have a few killings and a rather disappointing ending. All in all an OK film just do not expect too much.
The beautiful Corringa arrives at a remote castle in the Scottish Highlands after being expelled from school. Once there we meet her mother,Aunt Mary, her mad son James. Also present are non family members who include Franz the Doctor who is there to treat the son and his lesbian girlfriend Suzanne. On the first night in the castle Corringa's mother is suffocated by an unknown assailant. At the funeral Angus the man who brought Corringa to the castle has his throat cut in the crypt after he goes back to rescue the cat who has been locked inside. Corringa's mental state begins to deteriorate after she is attacked by the cat while sleeping. In the morning the Doctor is confronted by a police inspector standing over Angus's body he asks the doctor to get him a death certificate.Meanwhile Corringa seems to be attracted to James and while visiting him is disturbed to find he keeps a caged Gorilla, she is also pursued by Suzanne who is attracted to her.Corringa confides in the local priest about her fears and her dreams that her mother will return as a vampire the priest tries but fails to convince her otherwise she runs off to tell James her fears and they kiss.Later someone lets the gorilla out of his cage. Corringa goes to her mothers tomb and is shocked to discover it has been wrecked as she flees from the tomb she runs into James and they end up making love. Later Mary walks in on Franz and Suzanne making love (he is also seeing her) and storms out Franz chases after her. Franz tries to blackmail Mary with a guily secret about her dead daughter whom everyone believes was killed by James. Suzanne leaves franz's room and tries to seduce Corringa but she is rejected and runs out. Franz is later murdered in the corridor by an unknown killer. The priest arrives and goes up to see James hes discovers him sitting over the body of his dead Gorilla who has been killed. Suzanne confronts Mary over her covering up of Corringa's mothers death and the police are called they open the coffin and find Franz's body instead. James appears in Corringa's room and tells him he knows who the killer is before he can he has to leave the room as the police believe him to be the killer. James retreats into the castle catacombs and finds one of the servants badly beaten he tells him he must save Suzanne as she is next, James runs off to help her but arrives too late as she is killed while packing to leave. Corringa discovers Mary standing over the body and runs away believing her to be the killer Corringa flees to the basement an discovers a rotten body and her mothers body. The killer is revealed to be the priest who is not really the priest (He's the rotten body)!!He tells Corringa he has just killed Mary he reveals himself to be a distant cousin who wants all the family money but he is shot by the police before he can kill her. This is a good giallo which is quite quick moving and atmospheric at times the killer was quite a surprise I recommend this to any fans of Giallo cinema.
Il boia scarlatto (1965)
Very Very Camp
I bought this with several others on a Brentwood collection so I was not expecting much.....How right I was. Now don't get me wrong its is a fun watch it concerns a group of people who break into a Gothic castle to pose for covers on horror novels. The cast are very stereotypical you have four beautiful models (A Bimbo,The foreign Beauty,The bitchy one and the prudish one)there is also the plain wardrobe girl (Guess who survives. Of the men they are also very typical,The hero,the older man and several faceless young men. One by one they are tortured and killed by the castle's owner as he believes he is possessed by the Scarlet Exicutioner. The dialogue is terrible and the version I watched was badly dubbed but for me that just adds to the fun its also fun to guess the next victim. Its a good weekend movie but do not pay much for it.
The Hazing (2003)
Starts Dodgy...Gets Better
Now firstly I have to say that bad acting and dodgy plots have never really bothered me but I do get very bored with films that have nudity in them just for the sake of a little T&A now I know there are a lot of guys out there who like that and thats OK its just not my thing. When I first started to watch this I thought that is what this was gonna be about as the first 30 or so mins concentrate mainly on the two girls going through a Hazing for a local Sorority House and breasts are beared and the girls undergo a little light spanking but when it came to the cream in the bra's I thought forget this its gonna be a T&A show. Luckily I did stick with it and boy does it get quite good once all the characters get to the haunted house and begin to get picked off one by one I was surprised also that you could not really pick out which characters were gonna survive as the girl I though was gonna be the final one was killed first. The gore content is very high and if like me you like that then you will be happy. All in all a good rental and if like me you like taking chances and buying films go for it I think you might like it.
Dark Walker (2003)
Seen A Lot Worse
I read your other reviews and bought this film with a little trepidation. The film concerns 8 teens being stalked and killed by a creature because the have opened a horror house on some sacred ground (Ithink the plot really does not make that clear). The killing are a little lack lustre and could have used a little bit more atmosphere but all in all it gets the job done. For those who care there is no nudity in this film at all (Male or Female)and the gore is very minimal so if either of these is your thing Avoid. If like me you are just looking for a fun/creepy way to pass 90 mins then you could do a lot worse. The ending is a little strange though and I felt it let the film down a little.
