02.15.06Weird Wednesday Maybe I was too tired for it or I'm not indoctrinated into the British exploitation scene enough or had biased expectations going in or whatever... but this movie didn't quite click with me. For a story about a woman who keeps loving her man even after he dies, comes back to life and starts decomposing, the alive-on-dead lovins were criminally sparse. I had something more akin to the guy in Deathdream's rate of decomp more in mind but this guy just stopped talking, got a little paler, then put in contact lenses for one scene. From the first scene on I wasn't expecting a level of gore/shock like the last few scenes in Lamberto Bava's Macabre, but still... I found myself wanting more than I got. The creep-o-meter was set at like 6 and I wanted 8.

That said, all the main actors gave good performances and some of the writing (especially in the beginning, before the main dude dies and stops talking) is pretty classic in its sheer oddity (it's not an affair...it's a love affair). I'll call it a near-miss.
