PIRAHNA (1978). Not bad JAWS inspired little film, but nothing exceptional. Good cast and early Rob Bottin FX. **1/2

Saw this one TV when I was a kid. Thought it was pretty effective in the horror and thrills. I don't remember anything about the characters though. I see this was directed/edited by Joe Dante. Had a slightly bigger box office than Dawn of the Dead.

PATRICK STILL LIVES 1980

Sleazy italian horror based barely on the "Patrick" movies. Very pretty to look at but horrible to watch.

DERANGED (1974). This has held up quite well and probably the best summation of the Ed Gein story with Robert Blossoms excellent in the role, although can't say the same about the rest of the cast. Nice gloomy feel to it and some early Tom Savini work.
For more on Ed, check out ED GEIN (2001 with a great Steve Railsback) and read DEVIANT by Harold Schecter. At all costs keep a copy of ED GEIN, BUTCHER OF PLAINFIELD with Kane Hodder/Michael Berryman from sullying your DVD player. ***

COMMANDO (1985). While this is really silly and incredibly violent, still enjoy watching the film as it is so over the top and so many great one liners, mostly from Arnold. And let's give kudos to all the Stunt People in here for all their work.
Arnold and Rae Dawn Chong have a great chemistry together and while I normally am not crazy about sequels, would not have minded a couple more of these. Arnold wasn't interested in the one that was planned, so with some story tweaking, it became DIE HARD.
Look for a young Bill Paxton. ****

Commando was a lot of fun. Stays fast and simple, but doesn't seem to get repetitive.

SWEET SUGAR (1972). Considerd the ultimate Women in Prison (WIP) film (although 1982's CHAINED HEAT might give it some serious competition), Phyllis Davis is busted for possession/prostitution and takes the offer to serve 2 years on a Sugar Cane plantation instead of a lenghthy prison term. You can probably guess what will happen in the film before it even does!
Not great by any stretch, but OK for what is and the late PD ( who was also in BEYOND THE VALLEY OF THE DOLLS, TERMINAL ISLAND-could also be considered a partial WIP- TV's LOVE AMERICAN STYLE and a steady gig on VEGAS) is jaw droppingly lovely, although she always looks perfectly clean throughout the film. **1/2
