Clean, Shaven Review


Excellent
Faster than you can say, "Toys in the attic," it becomes painfully apparent that Peter Winter (Peter Greene -- Zed from Pulp Fiction), the main character of Lodge H. Kerrigan's new film, is not quite right.

Headless Body In Topless Bar Review


Very Good
James Bruce's minor cult classic, Headless Body in Topless Bar, is itself a recreation of a cult classic of its own. In the early 1980s, the inimitable New York Post led off one memorable issue with the headline "Headless Body in Topless Bar," reporting a real story about a man found murdered and decapitated in a strip joint.

Barry, a chunky version of David Caruso, credited only as "Man") arrives in a quiet strip club with few patrons, then promptly proceeds to rob the place, accidentally killing the bartender in the process. Man panics, taking the lone dancer and patrons hostage, then forces them all to spill their darkest secrets, or humiliating them some way or another. By the time it's all said and done, our Man has made off with wallets, watches, and the proprietor's head... and some amazing stories.
