Transcript ERASERHEAD £ David Lynch, 1976) Another one for adult-viewing only. This film captures all the horror of nightmare, together with some of the humour of Monty Python and the imagery of New Wave fiction. Henry Spencer's girlfriend gives birth to a freak forcing Henry to do the right thing and live with her. Henry retreats into a fantasy world behind a radiator where a lady with cancerous cheeks dances on huge spermatozoae. Either not to be missed or not to be seen. Written by David Lynch. (89 mins) THE MAN WHO COULD WORK MIRACLES (Lothar Meddes, 1936) Roland Young plays the meek protagonist with the power to do (almost) anything and yet cannot affect the way people feel about him. A nice satire about the futility and corrupting effect of power, based on H. G Wells' short story. Good special effects by Ned Mann. (80 mins) CAPTAIN KRONOS: VAMPIRE HUNTER (Brian Clemens, 1974) Rarely seen (on tv next week) off-beat sword and sorcery movie. Not run-of-the- mill Hammer horror but rather an occult swashbuckler, Captain Kronos being a student of Zen who destroys vampires with a silver sword. Stylish, amusing and even witty at times. Written by Brian Clemens and starring Horst Janson, John Carson and Caroline Munro (who is now of course infamous as Stella Star in 'Starcrash'). (91 mins) THE ULTIMATE WARRIOR (Robert Clouse, 1975) Nasty, violent, unpleasant - but good fun. Yul Brynner plays the same sort of implacable, irresistable force he did in 'Westworld' - casually despatching 20 or 30 men during the film on behalf of Max Von Sydow and his motley followers who are trying to survive in a brutal post- catastrophe New York. Good job the future won't really be like this, eh? Scripted by Robert Clouse, it also stars William Smith as the villainous 'Carrot'. (94 mins). MR FREEDOM (William Klein, 1968) A French film with English dialogue starring Donald Pleasance and Delphine Seyrig. A "futuristic pop extravaganza" and a "satirical comic strip on a Way of Life that is really a Way of Death". Despite this it could be good. This may be your only chance to miss it. (94 mins) TWILIGHT S LAST GLEAMING (Robert Aldrich, 1977) Burt Lancaster plays a renegade American army general who takes over a nuclear missile base in an attempt to force the government to reveal the real reasons behind America's involvement in the Vietnam war. An interesting variation on the theme of Dr. Strangelove but unlike Kubrick, Aldrich treats it completely straight. Considered purely as a thriller it works very well and the set pieces are handled with skill by the director. Contains several moments of nail-biting tension. And it is compatible with most futurologists' prognostications that This is the Way It Could End. Written by Ronald M. Cohen and Edward Huebsch and stars Richard Widmark and Charles Durning. ( 122 mins). FINALLY, IF YOU WERE LOOKING FOR A BLURB ON ""THE MYSTERIANS/; IN BETWEEN "FLESH GORDON" AND ""THE CAR", THIS IS WHERE YOU'LL FIND IT: THE MYSTERIANS (Inoshiro Honda, 1957) Japanese title: Chikyu Boeigun. A sort of Japanese 'Star Wars' produced by those lovable people who brought you Godzilla and various other sweating men in rubber suits. The story, such as it is, concerns evil aliens who kidnap Earth women with the intention of breeding with them (Earth men, they're not crazy about). Ends in a pyrotechnic display of loony special effects. Particularly impressive is the robot that resembles a giant metal aardvark. The dubbing is execrable. (In fact, why did we choose this film, Roy? What do you mean it was my_ idea? thought you ticked it in the catalogue. Well, whose writing is that, then...). 19.
