Movie Info

British sado-exploitation guru Pete Walker directed this mundane horror-mystery about an American pop star (Jack Jones) who, after a long hiatus, decides to return to England in an attempt to jump-start his career and finds himself immersed in a supernatural mystery involving the grisly murder of his estranged wife at their London flat. Through revelations provided by his wife's ghost, he attempts to solve the murder -- which may have been committed by something not entirely human. Although nowhere near as bloody as Walker's notorious cult classics Schizo or The Confessional, this is still rather gruesome stuff, enlivened somewhat by the presence of Pamela Stephenson as the latest object of Jones' affection. ~ Cavett Binion, Rovi

Audience Reviews for The Comeback (Encore) (The Day the Screaming Stopped)

With its artificially bright lighting and prominent use of "Love Boat" singer Jack Jones and David Doyle (then riding high on "Charlie's Angels"), "The Comeback" feels like made-for-TV hokum. Jones plays an unlikely superstar singer (since when did '70s easy-listening acts sell six million copies?) whose return from a long hiatus is hampered when someone starts killing people in his inner circle. Suspects are set up with unsubtle calculation (one red herring is particularly ridiculous) and then killed off. Holly Palance has an especially thankless role as Jones' ex-wife who is brutally murdered at the start and then has her corpse repeatedly turn up in more and more mutilated form.
