A difficult-to-find film
30 July 1999 | by Norm-30See all my reviews

This is a very "odd" film about the owner of a hotel (Zucco) who as a side-line of smuggling criminals into Canada.

It is a VERY "atmospheric" film, with plenty of rain, thunder, and mysterious goings-on. Comedy relief is provided by the "scared-reaction comedy" of Strange & Foulger.

Many reviewers have (unfairly, in my opinion) "panned" this film, but I think it's a film worth seeing.....and VERY difficult to find!
