– (1973) – An average man who discovers a famous magician’s cloak becomes a famous magician. The plot to get things going is bad enough, but too many other aspects are thrown in to render this a conglomeration of bad scenes that form one nonsensical concoction. A complete mess that disappeared for a reason.
– (1980) – A journalist investigates the murder of a man who’s not placed in his coffin. The mystery elements and drawn characters are decent at first, but the story gradually becomes more and more sluggish. The twist ending is okay, and the final shot is a good one, but overall this is a bit dry and uneventful.
– (1972) – People are picked off at a Western tourist attraction, allegedly by a decapitated murder victim. Begins as a whodunit complete with obvious red herrings, but turns into a shootout over gold. A dull chunk of slop that only holds interest in wondering what banality could occur next, while horror takes a backseat to cheese.
- (1970) – Someone’s picking off selfish women at Coney Island, and only one dumbass cop is on the case. Gets off to a good start with genuine humor and moderate violence, but has a structural pattern that repeats too often. The killer’s motive is different, and events gradually become more twisted, but most of this is pretty common and cheap.
– (1995) – A model in need of standing out from her peers drinks a growth serum that increases her size, as well as one of her colleagues. Gives excuses for sporadic nudity, but the plot seems to want to focus on a story when all anyone wants to see is the battle between two gigantic bimbos. Cheapens the values of women, sleaze, and special effects.
