This movie a lot better and more effective that it really has a right to be - considering it is a direct rip off of Village of the Damned and The Birds. Tom and Evelyn on the rudest, dull witted, and most entitled English on Holiday. When Tom is not walking straight into people's houses, he is barking orders at the locals. Evelyn is a bit more concerned with the fates of the locals, but most just stands around and sweats. When she is not crying out for her TOM. The Children are marvelous, though, and really that is the most important bit. Well that and the sun bleached location. Brilliant, that, really. Great ending, somewhat. And the brutality is up there, even if most of it is done to local customs and general polite behavior. The only thing that bothered me was how slow and stupidly Lewis Fiander ran. Otherwise, everyone is covered in sweat and you can smell the BO mixing with the sea air. They don't make them like no more, fo shure.
Now this is the stuff! A real good filthy one. Not only is the good Baron treating the criminally insane in a dirty prison, but he is blackmailing the warden and using the inmates as his only personal body farm. Along comes the uppity Shane Briant as Dr. Helder, who has been convicted of the same sort of arrogant grave robbing organ harvesting. Why these ghouls rely upon town drunkards, I will never understand. Madeline Smith plays the Angel, who does not talk, just looks longingly at the various scenery keeping her bosoms well covered. Still what a fetching young girl! Darth Vader plays the monster ape man with the rotting brain of a math professor. Bad things happen. Mainly to the monster. The ending is one of the best in the series.
Who knew that restoring a church painting could be so deadly. Of course there is a horrible secret hidden in the image. One that Capolicchio stumbles upon too late but not late enough, if you get my drift. The movie is mean little piece on the sacrifice of art and the dynamic of siblings. Over all, it has some creep factor, but takes too long to really get rolling and by the time the good parts begin, I was just about checked out. Silly ending though makes it fun.
Oh dear. What a terrible pickle. What will the islanders do when they are told that they are not inbred hillbillies suffering the divine punishment of god, but instead are actually being poisoned by a bad dumping of toxic wastes? probably cry. mark my words. Silly and boring.
Lionel Barrymore in drag. Or at least earrings. He really looks like Granny, the owner of Tweety Bird. Maybe he was the inspiration. As a revenge tale this is somewhat incomprehensible. Why is it set in Paris, Noelle kept asking. I had no answer. The special effects are stunning for 1936. But, here is the thing, Lavond did not need little people to do any of what he did. Not really. But this one features one of the maddest mad scientist schemes in existence - shrinking all the humans in the world to eliminate starvation and over population. Kooky.
