  • Psychopath

    Psychopath 1968

    ★★½ Watched 15 Aug, 2015

    As if being given the title, Psychopath, in UK and US were not silly enough, there is much more in store for the intrepid investigator of spoof Bond product. George Martin leads, perfectly adequately and there are some fine looking ladies but silliness tends to prevail, although as another has said, it never becomes completely tiresome as there is always something vaguely, amusing or intriguing cropping up. As a for instance, and this was neither amusing or intriguing, the prominently…

  • Killing of the Dolls

    Killing of the Dolls 1975

    ★★★★ Watched 12 Aug, 2015

    I'm probably being rather generous here, but I enjoyed the film and

In this film, ostensibly about a couple of ladies living out a BDSM relationship in a rambling old mansion, his filmic inspiration…

    Strip Nude for Your Killer 1975

    ★★★★ Watched 27 Feb, 2013 1

    I didn’t think much of this when I first saw it and don’t think much of it now. It’s terrible really because the girls are great and it looks good most of the time with plenty of sexy kills. The title, salacious though it is, is pretty accurate, but the predictable tale plods along and in the end produces a killer we have not only not seen but did not know existed! Distortion on the soundtrack doesn’t help this one.…
