AKA The Fanatic
A mad amateur director pursues a famous actress to try and get her to star in his first film in this risible slasher, with plenty of blood-letting and cheap effects but little else. The film is set at the Cannes film festival of 1981, and makes much use of stock footage in an attempt to lend credibility to the story, unfortunately this only comes across as filler. One of the most humorous things is that we see clips of various fake horror films during the movie's course, which we are told are "masterpieces" and that the lead actress has a higher approval rating than the like of Faye Dunaway and Jodie Foster. Sadly, they look even cheaper than the main picture itself (No mean feat) so the Grand Jury is either thick or has been downing too much French wine.

As the body count rises, our boredom increases rapidly too.. and we get more time-wasting montages on the beach and in some neon-lit disco which plays some of the worst early 80's hits you could ever want to here. The murderer himself is an overweight mama's boy with one of those annoying whiny dubbed voices that makes him sound like a Woody Allen wannabe. We pity him, sure, but he doesn't scare us, not for a second. As for Caroline Munro, well she's a beauty and she has more glamorous costume changes throughout the film than Joan Collins in Dynasty. But her thespian skills are virtually nil, which make her acclaimed acting talent in the movie somewhat unconvincing. Overall, not worth the 99p I spent on the DVD, and off I go to stick it on Ebay (come and bid if you like, but please don't say I didn't warn you!!) 1/10
