The acting is non-existent. The story-line is stoopid times 12.
The good reviews here are clearly phony as is this trivia bit:
The cellar used in the film was actually part of the house that was in the film. Since it was in the South and uninhabited, it was filled with giant spiders. During the filming of many sequences, enormous spiders would propel down from the ceilings and crawl across the floors. Robert Levey II, the film's lead actor, has terrible arachnophobia and each time a tarantula dangled down towards him, the director would grab it by the web and run out so that he would not know about it. Robert did not see one spider during filming, but the crew saw dozens.
Tarantulas do not come down off the ceiling. No bif spiders to. What garbage.
Emotionally troubled ethnic somehow gets mesmerized by phony self help guru Tony Roberts into using a never traveled road in the desert where there is no cell phone service so she can get a flat tire and her annoying brat kid can get bitten by a rattlesnake.
But was it just ANY rattlesnake?
I wish Netflix would save it's money and stop making really horrible, boring, poorly directed and written, unoriginal-original movies.
Early on in this 1944 movie while in a NYC taxi a marquee is past showing the Laurel and Hardy movie, Swiss Miss, which actually came out in 1938!
Film noir film that is completely implausible, as is the male star's stated age of 29 (he looks 40)!
I'm really surprised at all the good reviews for this flick, as the story is not particularly good, nor is it all that original. It's filed with holes.
And BTW why did everyone in the movies smoke like a chimney? Even into the 70's they were all lighting up. You gotta wonder if tobacco really causes heart disease and cancer since so many of these actors lived into their 80's and 90's!
I simply love the bar tender who dusts the bars and cash register with a dirty rag and then wipes it all over his face. What was that all about?
A feature player in this flick is Aurora Miranda who was the sister of Carmen Miranda. She's way hotter -- WAY HOTTER -- than Carmen.
The flick was made before they tore down the 6th Avenue el train in Manhattan.
Nothing in this movie makes sense. It's simply not plausible in any way shape or form. There's actually a scene where a guy runs out in traffic -- you don't see him get him -- you just hear the car screeching and then his hat gets thrown to the curb!!! Funny stuff.
First the mistake: Early on there's a guy named Joe playing a worn bongo. Someone yells -- "Speed it up Joe" and suddenly the bongo he's using is brand new!
Anyway, this is a silly moral play that doesn't cut it for me. Maybe it's just too dated. But it's clear this is just another Hollywood leftist message movie. The woman was guilty. Hence, her sentence was just. Case closed.
After a short while that jazzy bongo music will get on your nerves.
I never connected with this flick. It was too loud and rather boring
Worst movie I've seen in a decade. First of all the woman who is in the lead role is all clay-faced plastic surgeried out and looks like she's pushing 50 but is supposed to be a model. It's hard to pay attention to her cuz you're focused on the chin implant and clay cheeks.
The story is moronic and unfunny.
Direction follows a format for this sort of trash.
