    The others...

    “Un assassin qui passe” (Michel Vianey, France 1980)
    The story of a serial killer but bears little resemblance to a slasher movie. We know almost at once who the killer is and the emphasis is not on the murders but on his psychology as he falls in love with one of his prospective victims - a weakness which, of course, will be his downfall. Classic crime movie but with good cast : Jean-Louis Trintingnan, Richard Berry and Carole Laure… 7/10

    “Dandy in Aspic” (Anthony Mann, Laurence Harvey USA 1968)
    Double-agent Alexander Eberlin is assigned by the British to hunt out a Russian spy, known to them as Krasnevin. Only Eberlin knows that Krasnevin is none other than himself! Accompanying him on his mission is a ruthless partner, who gradually discovers his secret as Eberlin tries to maneuver himself out of a desperate situation. The last Anthony Mann movie (he died during the filming and the movie was finished by Harvey…) A complex and slow paced spy movie much better than it’s reputation… 8/10

    “Pleins feux sur Stanislas“ (Jean-Charles Dudrumet; France 1965)
    Sranislas, a famous French spy is writing his memoirs. All would have een be fine if a young and pretty journalist with whom hefalled in love had not been kinapped by members of a secret organization The 13 columns… Deads, chases, full action, stunts and pretty Nadja Tiller… Armless spy comedy… 6,5/10

    “The Blue Sextet” (David E. Durston, USA 1971)
    Jeffrey Amber jumps to his death and the police have no problem thinking that it was suicide. His friends gather shortly after his death and discuss their last moments with him and we slowly begin to wonder whether it was suicide or murder… Some kind of psychedelic and sexy Rashomon tale of the poor Blue Sextet is a true rarity worth of watching for underground movie fans… 7/10

    “Zombie” (aka “I Eat Your Skin” “Zombie Bloodbath” “Caribbean Adventure” and so on…) (Del Tenney, USA 1964/1971)
    A cancer researcher on a remote Caribbean island discovers that by treating the natives with snake venom he can turn them into bug-eyed zombies. Uninterested in this information, the unfortunate man is forced by his evil employer to create an army of the creatures in order to conquer the world. The movie was made in 1964 and released only in 1971… as a second feature at the bottom ogf the bill below the cult horror trash I Drink your Blood. And as usual with Del Tenney , it’s ultra broke movie but enjoying one for all B fans… 4/10 but 8/10 for B fans…

    That's all for today...
