Eyes Of A Stranger Review


Very Good
Surprisingly gruesome, this 1981 thriller is noteable primarily for the first feature film appearance of young Jennifer Jason Leigh, playing a girl so traumatized by her past that she's become hysterically deaf, mute, and blind. And wouldn't you know it her dumb sister (Lauren Tewes, "Julie McCoy" of The Love Boat fame) is a newscaster taking on the local serial killer with in-your-face broadcasts and Nancy Drew-style sleuthing. Director Ken Wiederhorn keeps things pretty terrifying for a slasher flick, with copious gore and inventive murders: The opening sequence lands one poor guy's head in an aquarium. It ain't Rear Window, but it'll get your gal to snuggle a little closer, I promise.

Friday The 13th Part 2 Review


OK
Jason, dead? I think not. Here he's on a bloody rampage against a bunch of kids at the camp next door to Crystal Lake, after taking out the redhead that did in his poor old mom in the original Friday (her stalking comprises one of the longest pre-credits sequences in film history). Don't give up. The titles are coming! Richly dated, my favorite moment is when one starlet ogles her new pair of satiny granny panties and tries them on to woo her boyfriend. It's as rich as they come, folks. Some of the murders are fantastic, but mostly this feels like nearly identical retread.
