Scalpel – The Blu Review

Review by Roger Carpenter

John Grissmer is perhaps best known for his little-seen and ultra-rare gore fest, Blood Rage, out now from Arrow Video USA. But a full decade before directing the super-bloody slasher he is best-known for, he made his directing debut with Scalpel.

Robert Lansing stars as Dr. Phillip Reynolds, a wealthy plastic surgeon who has suffered a cursed life. First his wife drowns in a tragic accident and then his teenaged daughter’s boyfriend drowns in the backyard pool. Finally, his daughter, overcome with sadness, runs away from home and disappears. It’s been a year now and there is no sign of Reynold’s beloved daughter, Heather (Judith Chapman). Now his father-in-law has passed away. Staunchly conservative and against plastic surgery because he didn’t believe in “changing the looks God gave one,” the Old Man wasn’t much of a fan of Reynolds to begin with.

2018 Daytime Emmy reels: Peter Bergman (‘Y&R’) wants to save his mother but destroy his brother [Watch]

2018 Daytime Emmy reels: Peter Bergman (‘Y&R’) wants to save his mother but destroy his brother [Watch]
Peter Bergman is nominated for Best Actor at the Daytime Emmys for the 21st time this year. That’s more than anyone else in the history of the category by far. The first of those noms was for his role as Cliff Warner on “All My Children,” but the other 20 have all come for playing Jack Abbott on “The Young and the Restless.” Given how often he’s nominated, though, it may be surprising that he has only won three times. Will he take home a fourth trophy in 2018? The winners will be announced on April 29, but they’ve already been decided in the drama acting categories by blue ribbon panels that viewed sample performance reels. Watch Bergman’s submission above.

The reel begins with a comedic scene between Jack and Gloria Bardwell (Judith Chapman), who are shocked and horrified to wake up in bed together after a drunken night.

2018 Daytime Emmy Reels: Greg Rikaart (‘Y&R’) says goodbye in more ways than one [Watch]
Greg Rikaart left the role of Kevin Fisher on CBS’s “The Young and the Restless” in 2017, but his work during his departure helped earn him a Daytime Emmy nomination for Best Supporting Actor. Rikaart previously won an Emmy for this role in 2005 on his first of four consecutive nominations in this category. Will the Emmy voters reward him with the ultimate parting gift? The winners of the Emmys will be announced April 29, but blue ribbon panels have already decided the winners after viewing sample performance reels. Watch Rikaart’s submission above.

The reel consists of two short scenes revolving around the death of Kevin’s wife Chloe (Best Supporting Actress nominee Elizabeth Hendrickson). The reel begins with Kevin delivering a tearful eulogy at Chloe’s funeral. He tells Chloe that the world didn’t understand her and that she had endured more pain than others could imagine, including the death of her daughter Delia.

Scalpel – Now Available on Blu-ray From Arrow Video

He Lost The Face Of The Woman He Loved… So He Gave It To Someone Else.

Scalpel (1977) is currently available on Blu-ray from Arrow Video

Us television staple Robert Lansing (Star Trek, Alfred Hitchcock Presents, The Twilight Zone) stars as a deranged surgeon in this twisty-turny psychological thriller from Blood Rage director John Grissmer.

When he happens across a young woman one night, her face beaten beyond recognition, the unhinged Reynolds sees his an opportunity to put his trusty scalpel to use – hatching a plan to ”reconstruct” her face in the image of his missing daughter, and so claim her sizeable inheritance.

Blu-ray Review – Scalpel (1977)

Scalpel, 1977.

Directed by John Grissmer.

Starring Robert Lansing, Judith Chapman, Arlen Dean Snyder, David Scarroll, and Sandy Martin.

Synopsis:

A psychopathic plastic surgeon tries to claim a huge inheritance by transforming the face of an accident victim into that of his missing daughter.

John Grissmer’s debut feature Scalpel is an odd one. Odd because, on the surface, the plot is so ludicrous that you’d expect it would be some sort of grindhouse splatter-fest where mad surgeons are carving victims faces up with maniacal glee and flinging the dead flesh at the camera; after all, back in the mid 1970s (the film was made in 1975 but not released until 1977) the practice of plastic surgery was reserved solely for unfortunate accident victims or the extremely rich and not something mainstream audiences had regular access to so it carried about it a bit of mystery. But dig beneath the surface – or
