Obscure and lacklustre thriller
31 March 2008 | by The_VoidSee all my reviews

Despite hearing nothing but bad things about it, I actually went into If Looks Could Kill with some expectations as I really liked the sound of the plot description. In terms of entertainment value, I often find that you cant go wrong with a trashy thriller; but this one is shabbily made even by genre standards and even more unforgivable than that is the fact that it's really rather boring. The plot should have given the film a great base for an entertaining thrill ride and focuses on a photographer who is asked to film a woman. Naturally, this seedy request turns out to be a bit less than kosher and soon the photographer discovers that he's been set up to take a murder wrap when the girl's dead body turns up. The film does have a gritty and seedy atmosphere which is to its credit as it helps the fetid atmosphere but the film is not a fun watch owing to the fact that the plot isn't made best use of and it's really rather ugly. Director Chuck Vincent's filmography is mostly made up of porn titles so it's not really surprising that If Looks Could Kill is unprofessionally done. This film is very obscure and hard to find and I'm sure that it will stay that way as there's no real need to track it down. Feel free to skip this one!
