Curtains (1983)

directed by:Richard Ciupka (as Jonathan Stryker)

cast:John VernonSamantha EggarLinda Thorson

Φανταστικό slasher από τον Καναδά.

Όλα τα συστατικά που συντελούν στη δημιουργία ενός όμορφου θρίλερ πέφτουν στις σωστές αναλογίες και στη μαρμίτα κοχλάζει ένας εύγευστος σκουρόχρωμος ζωμός.Πολλές “κόκκινες ρέγγες”(sic)κάνουν αισθητή την παρουσία τους κατά την εξέλιξη της πλοκής και το τέλος αφήνει το θεατή “παγωτό”.

Αξιομνημόνευτες σκηνές,αδιαπέραστη ατμόσφαιρα,δημιουργική σκηνοθεσία,όμορφες ερμηνείες,φανταστικό soundtrack και ανατριχιαστικό φινάλε,οι παράγοντες που έκαναν το γράφοντα να αγαπήσει το “Curtains”,μπείτε και εσείς στη διαδικασία να ανακαλύψετε αυτό το φιλμάκι,θα σας προσφέρει στιγμές ποιοτικού κινηματογραφικού γκραν-γκινιόλ και στο τέλος του θα αισθανθείτε τουλάχιστον τυχεροί που διαθέσατε το χρόνο σας για να παρακολουθήσετε αυτή την ταινία.

Slasher Α’Εθνικής…

Samantha Sherwood has worked with the well-known director Jonathan Stryker on all his major films. She naturally assumes she has been given the title role in his latest venture, “Audra”. He tells her that she nn needs to do some background research on the part, so arranges to have her committed to an asylum (as Audra is a former psychiatric patient). She goes along with this, not realising that he intends to leave her there indefinitely and audition six young women of various professions for the part instead. She finally manages to escape, and returns to the spooky old mansion where the auditions are taking place. But who is causing the disappearances of the young hopefuls?? Is it Samantha? Stryker? Or is one of the actresses willing to kill for the coveted part?? Just who is the killer behind the old-hag mask??? 

 Very entertaining,extra ordinary slasher ,blessed by good acting and many effective scenes like the ice skating murder scene and  the dream sequence with the doll.The twist ending is also very well made.The killer’s mask is really scary as well.The slick direction and the film score also contribute to the overall quality of the project.

To sum this up.”Curtains” is an extremely underrated film that almost went under the radar for most slasher fans,this is extremely unfair,because the tension and the style that lurk withing the frames of this film are rare to be found in other similar production that go for the (obvious) jugular.This is much more than a plain and simple bloodshed.
