Canada Russia '72 torrent reviews

John C (gb) wrote: I have to say, I don't agree with Scott Weinberg's review of this movie. I could not get into any of the characters, the acting, or even the effects. This was just a poorly made movie. Norman, a potential suicide victim, wants to kill himself but doesn't want to do it alone. Guised to a wooded area cabin, he and who he thinks are several others are all going to commit suicide together. Unfortunately for Norman, this was just a ruse intended to bring a "willing" victim to a torture party. Once the cats out of the bag, Norman all of a sudden finds things worth living for, naturally. Through ill placed flashbacks and storyline, we are given reasons why we should root for Norman to escape his torturous situation, including a possible musical career and a new love interest, however none of them really worked for me to change my mind of "just kill him and get this movie over with."

Alexander W (ru) wrote: CGI animted adult adult rated movie. The jokes are funny enough but with a sinister and often pointless punchline. The undertone of the movie is built up around drug use and trafficking, inside an Elephants tummy to say the least. I didnt watch this movie with much expectation and left with less, but for some this movie will be cult comedy.

Julia C (mx) wrote: Not sure how anybody was actually fooled by this when it originally aired on BBC, but its influence on later (and considerably more interesting) stuff like [REC] can't be denied. Plus that awesome dude from Red Dwarf is in it.

Laura B (ru) wrote: I think i've seen this movie about 100 times and i still love it. it's one of those obscure films that didn't really do to well in theatres, but is a cult classic!

Eric R (mx) wrote: Welcome to the days of our lives... with BLOOD! From the silly title I was expecting some over-the-top gore film in the vein of Herschell Gordon Lewis's blood drenched films of the sixties but instead got a bloody soap opera, literally! Blood Mania came out better and more engrossing than the title would suggest!What we have here is a nymphomaniac who lives with her dying, verbally abusive bed ridden father. She has a huge crush on her father's doctor... a doctor with a shady past. It looks like the doctor did some illegal abortions in the past for some quick cash and his old business partner is black mailing him for 50,000 dollars. The doctor, desperate for money, decides to start having sex with his patients nymphomaniac daughter as she promises him the money. Her plan is kill off her father for his inheritance. All goes well for the scheming couple until her younger sister shows up and inherits all the money. Our lovable doctor decides to put the charm onto her instead and our nympho goes totally bonkers. A blood bath ensues.Like I said before, this is a blood drenched soap opera with enough drama to keep any woman happy... that is if they aren't offended by kinky sex, nudity, and blood. Fans of early sleazy seventies cinema with plenty of skin will find some enjoyment as about everyone in the film has a nude scene. There's even a psychedelic drug high sex sequence with some odd camera effects. Director Robert Vincent O'Neill gives us some interesting camera work but some of his stylistic shots were questionable. He even went so far to have an entire conversation filmed from the waist down. Not sure I would used that approach but oh well. The funky seventies score can also be a little grading at times but not enough to make me want to cover my ears.Blood Mania is definitely not for all tastes and it seems many horror fans actually dislike it. I believe this is due to the soap opera plot but strangely enough I found myself engrossed in it. If the plot is not to some peoples liking then there is enough skin, sleaze and bloody violence to appease people looking for a horror film that is a little different than the norm. Speaking of sleazy director Robert Vincent O'Neill would directing the notoriously sleazy 80's cult favorite Angel, a film that today remains very popular with the cult film crowd.

Allan C (jp) wrote: Fine low key comedy/drama written and produced by Blake Edwards, from a William Goldman novel, greatly deserving of more recognition and a wider audience The film features the great Jackie Gleason and Steve McQueen in an uncharacteristically goofy role. There's also a terrific Henry Mancini score to boot. The film has a unique and oddly melancholy tone, but it feels sincere and works for the film. A must see for McQueen and Gleason fans.

Robert C (us) wrote: This is a visually and audibly beautiful movie, but I don't think it has interesting things to say.

Spencer K (au) wrote: Let Us Prey is a unique and fun lowkey horror film that had enough genuine scares and thrills to warrant a recommendation for horror buffs. it's avoids the tire cliches of the horror genre and delivers a satisfyingly creepy, dark, and visceral thrill ride. it's storytelling may not be the greatest, but I quickly overlooked it. and Liam Cunningham is great.
