Arnold



IMDB entry. Full movie below.

One reviewer there says:

The whole thing takes on the air of a ninety minute game of "Clue" played in reverse, as greedy, grasping relatives and hangers-on are dispatched in the most gory and inventive ways possible for a dead guy to come up with. Amongst the suspects/victims are THE Elsa Lanchester, Roddy McDowall, Patric Knowles, Farley Granger, the witchy Ms. Wallis, who gets to sample some of the hottest "cold cream" on the market, Jamie Farr (yeah, Klinger from M*A*S*H himself,) and Victor Buono, in a hysterical cameo as the 'lucky' minister who gets to officiate at the nuptials.

Threading the RCA Projector



The latest entry in our boredom contest. This guy's voice is particularly deadly--especially when he repeats the same passage!

However, I now want to say "sprung idler" and "snubber roller" over and over, so the film must have worked!

The fact that this skill is extinct does add a certain piquancy to the boredom, though.

FLUKE



I wonder why the trailer neglects to tell us that the dog houses the reincarnated soul of the little kid's father, who croaked in a car accident. Read the synopsis of the rest of the film to learn of its heart-warming tale of death, malevolence, vivisection, and heartbreak. A feel-good pic!
