    ★★★★

    Opening half feels somewhat typical but this strange "movie about making a movie" eventually takes a hairpin turn into crazy, random violence and unpredictable plot twists. There's a few good laughs with William Smith donning a long wig and fu-manchu moustache, but the tone gets yanked back and forth from light 70's exploitation fare to bleak violence in a few novel ways. Also a rare turn for Mary Woronov as a romantic lead. Feels like a cheaper companion piece to something like the Robert Forster movie Stunts. This one was a real surprise.

    This one seems really underseen, and hopefully there are a lot of people like me who taped this off TCM a few months ago and have a chance to watch it soon. Bernie Casey is so good here, never having to say much to get his part across. Ron O'Neal from Superfly and the always watchable Vonetta McGee from The Great Silence are in support roles.

    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.

    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.
