Balding, slimey, lothario Ray Fernandez (Tony Lo Bianco) makes his way through life as a confidence trickster. Seducing older ladies with his charm and perfectly rehearsed, fictional backstory. Attracting vulnerable elderly ladies whom maybe less lucky in love, wheedling his way into their lives with charisma and the lure of his Spanish accent. Once he has ensnared his prey, the plan is to marry and steal all their cash. Ray scans the lonely hearts columns for his victims, unfortunately there is abundance of unloved, alone ladies for him to play his cruel games on.

Disclaimer, I was extremely drunk when watching this, my first film of 2018! Started the New Year with a some cheese but very entertaining cheese I must add, think maybe a piece of Monterey Jack? An American semi hard cheese. New Years Eve was all done and dusted, the guests had gone home, the family tucked up in bed. This here Wolfman needs to unwind, time to sit back, chill with a coffee and a bourbon. Fired up the classic section on Netflix and there sitting right at the bottom was Assassination with BRONSON in big letters above it. Sold.

Oh if only this movie had taken the tongue in cheek route and had fun with itself rather than playing it with a deadpan serious tone. At least then you could forgive the wooden acting and lethargic pace. Strange Invaders is a homage, satire to the 50’s sci-fi films of yesterday. Bringing nostalgic vibes of 50’s classics like Invaders from Mars and Invasion of the Body Snatchers. I also got a vibe for 60’s Earth takeover series The Invaders which starred Roy Thinnes.
First up! How the festive giblets could I have ever missed this prized turkey cult classic science fiction film before! Seriously this must of been at eye level in every VHS rental store in the 80’s. I bet my grubby teenage hands would of even picked it up and pondered renting it before something else took my attention. In a way I’m so glad I did miss it, as what an absolute treat to find it now. Oh my days, what 5 star fun that was and unintentionally stumbling upon an alternative christmas flick in the mix. It’s the season to be jolly for sure.

I’m in seventh heaven coming into the world of noir very late in the game. The fatalist stories might be depressing to some but they are so honest, brutal, compelling and extremely exciting. Quick penned stories that leave out all the filler and go straight to the killer. Hard hitting and original every single time. I watch one, another is recommended. Continue reading “Detour (1945) Savage Tongued Savage”→
Oh what a top buzz indeed. I just seen a film that sits perfectly to the feeling I had when I first watched John Frankenheimer’s 1966 thriller with Rock Hudson, the quite brilliant Seconds. That same feeling of watching something really special and highly original for the time. Damn man, Shock Corridor hit all the right notes for me.

I had a nice surprise visit from my old friend Yohan the other day. Just popped on by for a catch up before heading off to one of the stars in the constellation of Orion. He’s a lovely guy but total germaphobe. Refuses point blank to take his spacesuit off. Luckily he has a small hole to sip cocktails through a straw but our conversation is awkward, just muffled sounds and consists mainly of smiles and thumbs up. Now I was just about to watch the classic 50’s science fiction film The Thing From Another World and he squeezed in next to me mumbling something along the lines of “those pesky carrot monsters are the bane of the galaxy”.
