The Most Assassinated Woman in the World

7/10 - OK, but disappointing that the payoff didn't actually deal with the main problem... you go to all that trouble and don't stop the killer?!

A little overlong as it dragged a bit in the middle, but it redeemed itself with a good finale, even if it was somewhat predictable. Appreciate that the focus was on the grand guignol theatre, but the story may have benefitted from a few more of the killings being included on-screen to liven it up. Once again, a period-set feature where some of the dialogue and props seemed out of place. 7 / 10
No tears, please. It's a waste of good suffering.

4/10. The recreation of the old school fx of the time, with inventive prosthetics and copious amounts of fake blood is cool, but Paula's story is bogged down by dodgy flashback sequences and misplaced romance. There's a good film to be made about the Grand Guignol and its place in the history of horror, but this ain't it.

1/10. This one bored me into actual sleep. I had tried to avoid it, but couldn't get a disco ticket.

Noticed that this is now available on Netflix

This was held back at the request of the director and writers so it could be shown at FrightFest

Better than Puppet Master: The Littlest Reich but not around The Man Who Killed Hitler and then The Bigfoot mark. Still entertaining though.
