THE SADIST (1963) [Mar. 10th, 2009|04:19 am]

Review by Stephen Duesner
ARCH HALL JR. was not an especially handsome leading man nor a particularly gifted actor. His pinched features and flop of blond hair gave him a look of mild disgust that his quick grin or exaggerated double takes could not shake. During his brief career in the early 1960s as a would-be movie idol and guitar-slinger, he made movies as entertaining as "The Choppers" and "Wild Guitar" and as relentlessly unwatchable as "The Nasty Rabbit" and "Deadwood '76," -- but none were hits.

Giving up movies and music, he became a pilot, started his own cargo airline, wrote a torrid aviation thriller and settled with his family in suburban Florida. Hall had a brief comeback on "Mystery Science Theater 3000" ("He's a Cabbage Patch Elvis," comments one of the 'bots) but the highlight of his career is without a doubt "The Sadist," a grimy black-and-white exploitation flick from 1963 that Legend House is re-releasing this week on DVD and Blu-ray.

Ingeniously shot by cinematographer Vilmos Zsigmond (who later won an Oscar for "Close Encounters of the Third Kind"), the movie traps a group of city folk in a rural junkyard, where they are terrorized by Hall's title character, who is based on spree-killer Charles Starkweather. There's no motive to the character's torment, just a unyielding twitchy sadism that's all the more relentless for being vaguely motivated. "I have been hurt by others, and I will hurt them," Hall says in a voice-over. "I will make them suffer like I have suffered."

Can't wait for this one to come out!



It actually looks like it was shot in the 70's and that makes me even more excited about it, haha!

Hey Bougie, I hope you'll be interested in this film genre.

I was looking at Wednesday's Globe & Mail (page R1) and noticed a film genre that might be of interest to you.

"FILM >> NO BORDERS, NO LIMITS: 1960s Nikkatsu Action Cinema"
"Inspired by film noir, melodrama, gangster flicks and westerns, the postwar movies of Japan's Nikkatsu are getting a rare Canadian showing ..."
"In the age of YouTube, downloads and wide selections of foreign films .. it's unusual to come across a genre of film that is virtually unknown in North America. .."

There are six Nikkatsu film being showing in Vancouver at Pacific Cinematheque. Screening started yesterday (July 31) and goes until Monday (August 4).

More info at http://www.cinematheque.bc.ca/jul_aug_08/nikkatsu_02.html

Heading out now so I only had time to make a short post.

From Beyond was finally released on DVD yesterday. Unrated director's cut no less. If you love horror, I highly recommend it.
