    This deserves to be much better known than it is. It is a really fun little comedy with Edward G Robinson on top form as a gangster who decides to get out of the business while he's on top when prohibition ends. His main ambition is to mix with high society, so there's plenty of fish-out-water fun to be had from showing how his Chicago gangster manners clash with his new setting. Robinson is obviously relishing playing the gangster stereotype…

    Enjoyable J-horror b-movie. There's no coherent narrative as such, but it does have a nice anthology kind of vibe, based around a convenience store with some decidedly odd owners. Some tense scenes (particularly the woman being chased into her apartment by a sledgehammer-wielding nutcase), some decent scares and a bit of weirdness. Creepy fun if you're not expecting much.

She looks so cute here, too - in her work outfits, in her stripey pyjamas, and that supercute playsuit when she's up on the roof!…
