Richard Harrisson, the cheapest
3 September 1999 | by prohibited-name-1142See all my reviews

Luigi Batzella, best known under his Eurociné pseudonym Yvan Kathansky, has directed a fine piece of nazi camp sexploitation that mixes not so well with a military drama. The fights are badly choregraphed, the actors are a shame and the storyline seems a bit improvised.

Technically this ain't a reference; at times, the image is so dark you can barely see what's happening. Richard Harrisson, the cheapest mustached hero ever, teams up once again with Gordon Mitchell (they worked together for another of Batzella's fine moments, BLACK GOLD) and with newcomer Lea Landers (the terrified girl we appreciated in Mario Bava's RABID DOGS) as an attempt to create thorn characters that will grip our hearts. They fail miserably and we are stuck with a sometimes funny but overall strange movie. Just give an ear to the music playing in the background during the orgy scenes and you'll get my feeling.

This movie is great for Batzella fans like me, but if you're not familiar with this psycho-trashic director, stay away.
