Blonde in a White Car 1958.
Sourced from French Blu-ray with English Subtitles added.
One dark night, in the deserted streets of Nice, an American car slowly drives past Victor Menda, then slowly pulls up. A come on from the mysterious blonde at the wheel leads to Victor finds himself kissing and making love to the gorgeous creature. But as soon as the embrace is over the mantis-like beauty rejects him and, under the threat of a gun, makes him leave the car. Worse, she tries and nearly manages to kill him by running over him. Cars have plates, and Victor traces the address of the monstrous nymphomaniac. To his amazement, he discovers a beautiful villa, in front of which the American car is parked, where two blonde sisters live together, both of whom look sweet and harmless
Super stoked to have finally snatched up a copy of the Scream Factory Child’s Play with the alternate slipcover. Yes, I am trying to get all CE variants as well, and that just leaves The Thing. If anyone had a copy of that slipcover or both the film and slipcover I’d be stoked to take it off of your hands! Murderous reanimated toys was a big thing in the 80’s, from Child’s Play to Puppet Master to Dolls (and I’m certain many, many more!). There’s just something so fundamentally horrifying about the idea that your favorite, most trusted childhood friend can turn against you, or your children. Child’s Play is easily one of my favorite classic 80’s horror flicks, and after having not seen it in many years, I decided to give it another spin, and boy does it hold up well! Still tense, still spooky, and still as entertaining as ever, I’m thinking I may have the Chucky bug, and a marathon is in order! What about you? Did you like Child’s Play? What’s your favorite film in the series?

THE DEMONS from @nucleusfilms – 3/10
This marks another first for me in my movie-watching career – my first Jess Franco movie. THE DEMONS is the story of a group of nuns who are possessed by Satan and the witch-hunters who are trying to kill them. Set in (undisclosed, I think) Europe in the middle ages, the film started out as an intended and blatant rip-off of Ken Russel’s THE DEVILS, but the final result is quite far from that in terms of plot and, unfortunately, quality too. Although the acting isn’t terrible and the actors themselves are undeniably gorgeous, especially Britt Nichols who had a disappointingly short career, plot and dialogue ultimately take a back seat to nude people writhing around and moaning in orgasm while the camera crash-zooms directly into any vagina it can find (and in one hilarious moment, a wall!) I’m not necessarily against those exploitative elements in cinema, but the most unforgivable thing for me is the length of the movie. It’s 2 hours long and has absolutely no right to be. It’s self-indulgence from Franco and it’s to the detriment of the film, which ends up dragging and repeating itself after a fairly entertaining first half. I hear there is an 88min cut of the movie that I’m sure would work a lot better because by the final act in this version the worst crime in cinema had been committed – I was bored!
The quality of the presentation here from @nucleusfilms is generally good. Picture is sharp if a little inconsistent – there are a few scenes with obvious fluctuations in quality. Audio is much the same although I seemed to notice variance in the volumes towards the end of the film. The disc does have a couple of really good extras and I do find it especially interesting to get the context around a film a strange as this one. Here it’s interviews with film historian \Stephen Tower and the direction himself Jess Franco.
@kowalski24 is out, so I was planning on getting all snug and finally checking out The Greatest Showman tonight (as she doesn’t do musicals), but PlayStation store is being a butthole so I’m settling for Moulin Rouge instead.
