What the....???? I can't believe my eyes! The credits read like a dream: Doug Bradley, Bill Mosely, Sid Haig, Giovanni Lombardo Radice! That's horror royalty right there. The film quality itself is not the usual horrorible substandard one. But the rest fits in quite nicely. The very first thing I noticed that was a tip off were very awkward scene transitions. Next, the "acting"... Whoa, Nellie! Dialogue! Oh boy! But those 2 combined is what elevated it to Manos status. It literally had me bursting out laughing at times, especially during the 'copy cat' scene. Hooded guy takes hooker to a cellar, concrete walls and chicken wire abound. Some lit candles on the ground. Hooker: "Oh, how romantic." Guy: "I am David O'Hara. The most wanted murderer in America.." Hooker: "I'm not really into that." Guy: " I could rape you and bash you in the skull with this claw hammer. But I want to exercise my superior surgical skills. You are going to be known as my first bone saw victim and my first hooker kill." ROTFLMAO Early on, I had to rub my eyes to be sure I wasn't dreaming Sid Haig reciting the most banal discourse I could've ever imagined coming from those lips! He plays a psychiatrist though he doesn't have much screen time. The funny thing was during his first scene, the banalities (How are you feeling? Hang in there... Remember your baby needs you...etc.) he says, 'I read something about 7 corpses (or something like that) were found disemboweled (or something like that)" as the camera zooms in on his face. I thought I detected a glimmer of glee in his eyes, which would've been more appropriate. Sid's true to type onscreen persona came out in the zoom. I wondered then if that meant anything.
I can't imagine how much money was spent on casting in this flick. Doug Bradley's character: a police detective. Giovanni: An FBI agent. (He tried to create a character at least; but there was no space for that in this film.) Bill Moseley: O'hara's father. There was only 1 line he uttered that I even remotely believed. The other actors: fughedaboudit. Gotta say though, the film is unsentimental. I appreciate that. I think its usually a bad idea when the same person writes, directs, and stars in a film. Its hard to do all 3 right. Unless you've been doing it your whole life. Writes and directs, not so much a problem. But stars too? Hard to maintain the necessary objectivity needed for direction. Anyway, I recommend this only as a contemporary Manos. I hope that was the intention.
