Synopsis

Summer 1946: Jake Slater, P.I. discovers a young woman’s corpse at the docks of San Diego and is quickly pulled into a world of cults, serial killers, new religions, secret societies, seductive secretaries and fair weather friends on the force. Determined to find the mysterious “Leatherman” who claims to be behind the killings, Jake soon finds bodies piling up all around him and strange discoveries like ancient relics that may be the key to the cult’s rituals. As the police label him a suspect, Jake has only his wits and his guns to find the cult within one week to stop them from carrying out their sacrificial “Endgame” before it is too late. But is anything truly supernatural happening or is Jake Slater being played?

PopMatters

Although the song “Gone Baby Gone” is the sole representation of MEMPHIS on this collection, this closing track proves to be an excellent choice, showcasing Scaggs’s smooth voice against light female backing vocals, amplifying the soul for a truly vintage Boz Scaggs song.

In 2006 the newly animated sequel film Robotech: The Shadow Chronicles was released and the version included in this set looks beautiful, however, the 2013 movie Robotech: Love Live Alive is actually an adaptation of the Genesis Climber Mospeada film Love Live Alive from 1985.

Film historians have also noted a striking similarity to Ranald MacDougall’s American sci-fi film The World, the Flesh and the Devil (1959), which closely mirrors the non-Harrison parts of The Quiet Earth.

Screwball tales like It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World (1963), Around the World in 80 Days (1956) and Lester’s own Beatles films would look mighty fine (and arguably a bit more complete) on the old DVD rack with A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum resting comfortably next to them.

This look at the making of the film and his reasons behind the project provides a smart and telling point of view for repeat viewings of this overall excellent (if anticlimactic) film.

Like this film, Robert Wise’s film adaptation is a terrifying experience in truly deep horror… but The Haunting, for all its terror, was rated G upon re-release under the MPAA’s guidelines.
