Bad movies I can watch, boring movies, no. .
And that is EXACTLY what it is... BORING beyond belief... you have no idea.
The script was about 25 pages (for a feature!!!) cuz the film is padded with long takes in master shots, including a dance class that makes the dance class in PIECES look like a blink of an eye.
The 16mm film was shot silent and dubbed, but only the few dialogue scenes have any ambient sound. Everything else is layered in a horrible repetitive synth soundtrack. The monster (an actor with bandage wrap on his head and Spock ears - no joke) limps down hallway after hallway in a one-shot chase scenes that goes on forever. And there's another long chase in an underground apartment garage.
And then there's the acting.... it's like BLOOD FEAST ('62), only worse, and often the dialogue is spoken slower to further pad the time.
And there's a scene with a women making a list of things via thoughts in her head... and you're forced to listen to the whole list as she goes through it and writes each word down. Of course the words are dubbed cuz it's her thoughts.
Oh... and not a drop of gore really. Some killings are the shadow-on-the-wall variety.
How do I know all this???
Cuz back in the 80s, I was stoooopid enough to star in it. LOL.
On the bright side, I did get to have sex with my bosomy leading young lady.... but that was at her place and had nothing to do with the film.
