Stars: Mike Killin, Katherine Kamhi, Paul DeAngelo, Nathan Tierston, Felissa Rose, Christopher Collet, Karen Fields Writer-Director: Robert Hiltzik Suggested Retail Price: $29.93 Distributor: Shout! Factory Great horror twists are hard to come by – especially back in the 1980s when slasher movies were all the rage and just about every trick imaginable was used up by the time FRIDAY THE 13th came along in 1980. However, 1983’s SLEEPAWAY CAMP is notable for providing one of the most disturbing and unexpected twist endings in the history of the slasher genre (don’t worry, I won’t reveal it here, but chances are you …Read On »

CD Review: WHO IS KILLING THE GREAT CHEFS OF EUROPE? soundtrack (limited edition)

WHO IS KILLING THE GREAT CHEFS OF EUROPE? soundtrack | ©2014 Varese Sarabande Records

All the dining metaphors in the world can’t do justice to Henry Mancini’s delicious mystery-comedy score for Ted Kotcheff’s equally delectable 1978 film that took cinematic food porn to new, mouth-watering heights. A composer who knew how to blend suspense, romance and humor with an escapist touch, Mancini starts the ovens rolling with a rollicking, Baroque theme that captures the pomp of haute culture. Eschewing “Pink Panther”-esque jazz in favor of a classical, continental approach, Mancini ooh’s-and-aah’s over the highly edible creations with perky brass and lush strings, while providing an unexpected melancholy bite in his love theme for Jacqueline …Read On »
