  • Psychic Killer

    Psychic Killer

    ★★★★

    Not that it has much of a reputation at all, being mostly forgotten, but Psychic Killer was so much better than I had anticipated going in. I had only seen one of director Ray Danton's films, The Deathmaster, which was a fun, but amateurish foray into hippie horror. This one is so many levels above that. Jim Hutton as the killer is almost as creepy and menacing as Robert Thompson in "Patrick", a very similar film in feel and style. I had seen the poster for this many times but never heard a strong recommendation. Let me fix that here. Highly recommended.

    IMDB Trivia says "Gwyneth Paltrow almost took the role of Kathy until her father advised her against it."

    Mr. Paltrow gets the "Dad Of The 90's" award for that call.

    Your Vice is a Locked Room and Only I Have the Key

    ★★★★

    Another Sergio Martino sleazefest done with a style and skill that only Argento could top. This one's a bit of a trick because the giallo element only goes about halfway before Martino breaks this movie wide open into something out of Edgar Allan Poe and even Hitchcock. It's totally unexpected and keeps you guessing at what the hell he's going to show you next. Edwige Fenech plays a stronger character than she usually does and that's half the fun of the movie. Definitely one of Martino's best, if not the best of his career.

    Ghoulies II

    ★★½

    Never thought I'd be 37 years old watching Ghoulies 2 on a Friday night. Somehow, two Ghoulies high-fiving each other was entertaining for me.
