Audience Reviews for Wicked, Wicked

Despite its low budget and lousy cast (the biggest name: Edd Byrnes), "Wicked, Wicked" is not as awful as one might guess. The "DuoVision" gimmick is the film's main lure but it's used quite cleverly at times, such as when a character lies about her past and the second screen reveals the seedy truth. Another intriguing element is the score, which is played "live" by a bizarre, elderly organist who often appears on camera. Turns out it's actually reused music from the classic "Phantom of the Opera" silent (which obviously influenced this film's plot). But beware: The contemporary songs warbled by a stalked lounge singer (Tiffany Bolling) are more gruesome than any of the film's stabbings.

Brian De Palma has nothing to worry about.

A thriller set in a gorgeous coastal resort in California? Hot blondes falling victim to an unknown killer? What's not to love?

I enjoyed the Duo-Vision split screen gimmick fairly well, and I think that because of it the flick would hold up to repeated viewings, as there's a lot going on in the screen for the duration of the film.

Worth a rental for sure.

just ok besides the lame "gimmick" duo-vision this is campy fun slasher mystery who done it at a run down hotel that looks alot like the hotel del coronado.
