    Dollman

    A tough-as-nails cop from another planet comes to Earth and discovers he is 1/6 the size of its inhabitants.

    First-time watch for me in honor of the recently departed Albert Pyun, and boy, do I wish I liked this better than I did.

    ★★★★

    A wealthy lord is haunted by the memory of his long-lost unfaithful wife: her image and voice seem to taunt him from every corner of his lavish castle estate. He's losing his mind! ...Or is he?

    Combining elements of giallo murder mystery; Gothic old-castle ghost story; and sleazy, swinging-London debauchery, EVELYN delivers terrifically despite missing some key exploitable touchstones. (Namely, gory or graphic murders, fast-paced action scenes, or [mostly] any ghouls or creatures.)

    In the lead role is lanky Spaghetti…
