Movie Review: Babyface (1977)


Directed by Alex de Renzy

Movie Review by Greg Goodsell

Skin trade auteur Alex de Renzy pushes lots of buttons with one of his most famous -- and accessible films, Babyface, given the royal treatment by the fine folks at Vinegar Syndrome.

Hulking Neanderthal with a nice haircut Dan (Dan Roberts, in a singular film performance) is tooling about his job at the seaside docks when he is propositioned by vivacious 15-year-old Priscilla (Lyn Malone). Taking advantage of the situation, their affair is less than five minutes old when Priscilla screams “rape.” Pursued and shot at by a policeman, Dan jumps in the drink to later wash up on shore, where he is later given sexual healing by two foxy mistresses. Needing a place to lay low, they suggest Dan hide out at a local male brothel that services horny housewives. The shoe on the other foot, Dan and his fellow male prostitutes (one played by longtime porn actor Joey Silvera), become the objects of the female eye … slabs of beef for feminine approval. In the meantime, Priscilla’s vindictive mom has vengeance in mind.

Daddy's Little Girl (2012) Movie Review

Okay. Let’s get this straight out into the open. This movie is not horror, even though it’s touted as such on IMDB. It’s definitely a thriller. Normally that makes me very angry because I go in with one expectation and get something completely different. In this case, though, I’m willing to forgive the false advertising because this is one of the most BRUTAL revenge thrillers I’ve ever seen. It might even top Old Boy and I Saw The Devil - or at the very least, be on par with them. And those are two nearly perfect films.

Daddy’s Little Girl is the story of Derek, a single father sharing custody with his ex-wife, Stacy, of their beautiful little girl, Georgia. Though tensions are obviously high between the two adults, Georgia seems like a very well adjusted and happy kid. So of course, something terrible happens.

Georgia disappears. And every parent’s worst nightmare comes true - her lifeless body is discovered on the beach the next day. While the police work the case, Derek’s life becomes a shambles. Naturally. After six months, the police say they have a lead (a random witness saw someone suspicious and they’re bringing him in for the sketch artist), Derek is dubious. However, he must start to move on with his life and makes a decent attempt.

Until one random find at a party leads him to the REAL killer of his precious girl. Instead of immediately going to the police, he traps the culprit and proceeds to torture this person for six days - one day for every year of Georgia’s life. He can worry about the police later. Right now it’s time to get his revenge on.


Let me get the nitpicky stuff out of the way first because I don’t want to end this review on petty bullshit that irritates just me. 

The quality of the film is a bit shoddy. It’s always just a little out of focus and some of the camera work is shaky, which makes me ill. The focus could have been a screener issue - as in the makers of the movie don’t want people stealing it for their own gain. I get that but it was a bit distracting. The audio was also wonky. The dialogue was much quieter than the sound effects so I was constantly having to adjust the volume through the whole movie. Some parts of the film were easily predictable or dialogue thrown in as obvious foreshadowing. Even the movie description makes it easy to figure out who the killer is.

You just sit there and think about what you've done, mister.

But those few things are about all I can say were ‘bad’ about the movie. Otherwise, this was an excellent thriller. The characters are developed in a way that you actually care about them. I cried at least three times throughout the film; I got super pissed at the ex for not taking care of something that led to Georgia’s disappearance; the killer was someone you WANT to get fucked up.

Speaking of that, Derek’s torture sessions are absolutely epic. He inflicts injuries in the manner of the killer’s previous kills or even stuff that happened to other children who’d been kidnapped and murdered. The knee splitter was probably my favorite though the PVC pipe up the ass was a smart way to insert…well, I’ll let you watch to witness that little slice of ingenuity for yourselves.

It does seem highly suspect to me that Derek just had to go on the Internet to learn how to do a few things he unleashes on this poor schmuck. But hey, I’ve never had to perform a tracheotomy before. Maybe all it takes is a good Google search…maybe not but Derek sold it well. The actor portraying him was completely believable. Though most people would think him nuts, I imagine if I were a parent I’d be cheering him on from the sidelines. Hell, I’m not a parent and I WAS cheering. A lot. Clenching every five minutes but cheering, too.

Looking for a good thriller where the bad guy absolutely gets what’s coming to him? Then check out this little gem from Australia.

Book Review: Carnival Piece by Ed Wood

Once again, the inimitable Ed Wood brings us crashing back into the sleazy underworld known as the carnival. In Carnival Piece, much like Wood’s earlier Side-Show Siren, there is a murder at a carnival. A murder and sex. A murder and sex and side-show freaks. From the novel's back cover:

LESBIANISM…
HOMOSEXUALITY…
TRANSVESTISM…
These are the sexplosive ingredients that go into one of the most penetrating studies of abnormal interpersonal
relations to yet appear in fiction. Enter the lives of the sex-driven characters of the CARNY!
A book you can’t put down!
LUST… MURDER… ABORTIONS…

Movie Review: The Creep Behind the Camera (2014)

Directed by Pete Schuermann

Movie Review by Greg Goodsell

In cult film fandom, there exists an echelon of maverick filmmakers who get their outlandish projects done in spite of a lack of money and no real discernible talent. Far, far, far removed from the studio system, upstarts such as Herschel Gordon Lewis and Edward D. Wood Jr. whip up colorfully inept motions pictures that people still treasure to this day.

There is a dark side to all of this admirable gumption and verve, however. The making of any independent feature film, from Sundance favorite to shot-on-video zombie epic is fraught with broken promises and unpaid bills. Case in point: Friend and bad movie director extraordinaire Larry Buchanan, for all of his old school charm and gentility broke quite a few eggs to make his omelet. To this day, actors on his Grade-Z stinkers such as Curse of the Swamp Creature (1967) have quite a few horror stories to tell – unrelated to the horror stories the films themselves were trying to tell! Just ask actor Francine York, who starred in the aforementioned Swamp Creature  … but that is a story for another time.

This dynamic is illustrated profusely in the quasi-documentary Creep Behind the Camera, the story behind the many-named Arthur Nelson, the cracked auteur behind The Creeping Terror (1964). Imminently familiar to the readers of this Web site, The Creeping Terror is about a vaguely phallic walking carpet monster that eats a few people and disrupts a dance down at the union hall in a small Californian town. Atrocious as it gets, the entire soundtrack to The Creeping Terror consists of narration from Wham-O! Toy commercial pitchman Larry Burrell and canned music. While celebrated by bad movie fans, there's no denying the fact that The Creeping Terror is best left as a late-night sleeping aid.
