Once in the Life

Once in the life (of drug dealing and organized crime), can anyone get out? During a brief jail stay, two half-brothers, who have rarely seen each other while growing up, connect. One of them, called 20/20 Mike because he can sense people nearby, concocts a scheme in which the two of them will steal some dope from young couriers. The heist goes awry when Billy, the junkie brother, shoots the victims of the theft. The brothers hole up in an abandoned building, and 20/20 Mike seeks help from an old cell mate, Tony, whom he thinks is out of the life. It turns out that they have stolen Tony's dope, and Tony's boss wants the two thieves dead. Is there any way out? Written by

Brian S (jp) wrote: Somewhere in Germany, a sickly girl named Ilse is dying and her childhood friend, a hunchback named Gotho, is pining over her demise, keeping her company and defending her from insensitive hospital staff. When she dies, Gotho steals her body and brings it to the mad Dr. Orla who promises that he can "make a new Ilse" if Gotho will agree to supply warm bodies for the snacking purposes of a monster he's working on. Gotho does, of course, and much fun ensues.I do mean fun, too. Paul Naschy is at his best as Gotho, and the mad scientist is truly mad and so archly stereotypical that you can't help but love the guy, even when he's got Gotho pushing people into a pit full of sulfuric acid on his behalf. For much of the film, the monster is either unseen or looks like a meat balloon at first, and then like a canister full of sausage and pantyhose later on. There's even a tie-in to HP Lovecraft thrown into the mix; Dr. Orla mentions that one of his inspirations for his work is the Necronomicon and that his monster is one of the Old Ones returned to earth. What's not to like? For an intellectually-challenged hunchback, Gotho does surprisingly well with the ladies. Perhaps it's because he looks quite a bit like John Belushi from a distance.For a B-movie, the acting is pretty good. The story is a by-the-numbers affair, which one would have to expect from a mad-scientist-and-his-hunchback-assistant flick, but the cinematography is actually quite good in much of the film and the sets are so deliciously cheezy that I defy any veteran of b-horror not to applaud when he sees the mad scientist's subterranean lair. He even gets kicked out of the academy. Perfect!The downside, though, is the film's utter predictability. It takes no risks, so educated viewers will see what's coming before the opening credits have finished rolling. Still, this one is worth a watch. It's "Frankenstein" meets "Re-Animator" meets a veritable textbook of pseudoscientific gibberish. The mournful acting by Paul Naschy begs the obvious question... would you like a little whine with your cheez? Camp horror fans will eat this one up!

Tony M (br) wrote: The title of this film is somewhat misleading. The Countess doesn't suck blood but does find the fountain of youth. It's pricey however and watching her spin downward is as metaphoric as it is horrific.4/5
