You'll like it. The zombies are cool, and it's funny and entertaining--low rent, but well made little film. Someone called it the blaxploitation "Dr. Phibes." That's just about right. [Smile]

Cool, Phibes is so good. The sequel not so much.

I think the original is a classic, and I like the sequel a lot too, though it's played even lighter. I wish they would have made the third one, "Brides of Dr. Phibles." [Smile]

i wonder though if it was bob clark's doing or purely jean shepherd's or the combo, that made those movies really great.

I would have to say that based on "A Christmas Story," "Black Christmas," "Deathdream," and "Porky's" that, Bob Clark, while not a legendary director, was quite good, sometimes. I think that his best skill was doing movies set in different periods that really put you in the mood for the period. Everyone likes "A Christmas Story," and I think that "Black Christmas" is a masterpiece. Two great films in a director's long career is nothing to sneeze at--even if that career had absolute dreck like the Superbabies movies, "Loose Cannons," and "Karate Dog." The docu, by the way, is okay. The big problem is that it focuses too much on his dreck, simply because the filmmakers got Scott Baio and Jon Voight to say really nice things about Bob.

Delayed reaction!

RE: Bob Clarke; I think he was a good (not great) director. There's no doubt that Shepherd's 'warm' family material is what elevated 'A Christmas Story' to the all-time classic it now is. On another note; am I the only one who still recalls when nobody had heard of 'A Christmas Story'?

Logan, I saw A Christmas Story on initial release in a theatre with about five other people and thought that it was great. It took many years for others to discover it.

Seance on a wet afternoon (1964) Such a great, depressing, messed up film.

THE STRANGE VICE OF MRS. WARDH- 1971

 -

Solid giallo effort by Sergio Martino. Not really a slasherfest, more in the murder mystery vein, with a side of kink, and a nude Edwige Fenech. So you can't really go wrong there. Nice locations. good score by Nora Orlandi. Also starring George Hilton and euro-sleaze veteran, Ivan Rassimov.

All the versions of Invasion of the Body Snatchers are strong--the '56 one is my favorite.

I haven't seen If... in many, many years, but I run hot and cold with director Lindsay Anderson. I really like O Lucky Man and This Sporting Life, absolutely despise Brittania Hospital, and don't remember a heckuva lot about If... .

I watched Meatballs again recently too, GP. It's kind of dated. (Do summer camps still exist?) But there is no denying that you can see how this movie made Bill Murray a star. He's hilarious in every scene--and I don't think that some of the stuff was all that funny on paper; Murray just makes it so. "It just doesn't matter... It just doesn't matter..." [Smile]

FORBIDDEN PHOTOS OF A LADY ABOVE SUSPICION- 1970

 -

Classy, and well made, yet bloodless giallo, by Luciano Ercoli. This movie foregoes sleaze and violence for suspense and tension. Beautiful cinematography, rich color scheme, great sets, locations, and some good performances by the cast.
Great score by Morricone (duuuh). Feels a bit like a Colombo episode... without Colombo.

Well worth seeing. The Blue Underground version looks amazing.


STRIP NUDE FOR YOUR KILLER- 1975

 -

If a movies opening scene is a gynecological exam, you can kinda guess that it's gonna be a somewhat sleazy affair. And this one sure delivers in the nudity department. Sadly, that is all it delivers. The muder plot, the acting, the directing and everything else, is rather uninspired. If not for several scenes of the lovely Edwige Fenech in her birthday suit, this one would have little to recommend.


DEATH WALKS AT MIDNIGHT- 1972

 -

Decent, if somewhat poorly constructed, giallo by Luciano Ercoli. Starring his wife, Susan Scott. More of a mystery crime thriller than anything else, but that's ok. Has its share of great scenes, but too many slowspots. Medium fare.

Agreed. It created a template that ran through the summer camp movies of the 80's (even the bad ones!) I can overlook the dated-ness for Murray, the music (good soundtrack) and some nice supports. Let's face it, most 80's summer camp movies are dated now. I never went to a camp... but I always wanted to.

Mr Majestyk 1974. Charles Bronson as a ex con and Vietnam veteran who runs a farm. After the local mafia destroy his crop, he flips and goes after them.

Also, the box set of The Persuaders. Curtis and Mooore having a laugh around Europe as a couple of playboy sleuths. Fantastic escapism.
On if.... , this is one of my favourite films ever, maybe you don't fully appreciate it unless you are from the UK. try it again, it grows on you.
