Editorial Reviews

John Vernon (CHAINED HEAT, National Lampoon's ANIMAL HOUSE) and Samantha Eggar (THE BROOD, THE EXTERMINATOR)star in this horror classic from the golden age of the slasher genre.

A group of women gather for a weekend casting call at the secluded mansion of director Jonathan Stryker (Vernon). He's searching for the perfect woman to play the role of the crazed character Audra, and these women are just dying for the chance to play her! Stryker's last star, Samantha Sherwood(Eggar), is so determined to get the part, she committed herself to an asylum to prepare for the role. Unfortunately for all, a crazed killer in a disgusting hag mask is viciously murdering everyone, one by one. Who will survive the final curtain call?

Lovingly re-mastered in 2K resolution from original vault materials virtually untouched for over 30 years, CURTAINS makes its high-definition world premiere from Synapse Films.

Great 80's horror movie.
movie_buff_guy
Well, let's just say that the slasher gods must have been looking down on this movie because it is simply incredible.
Slasher Studios
Really well made movie, I won't say it is a horror movie, but it is a suspenseful movie with a great score.

This Canadian slasher is quite the sleeper in a genre full of hockey-masked summer camp killers, and babysitter stalkers. Then we have the quiet, eerie "Curtains". For years I have been telling others about this film and yet not many remember it, or heard about it. But when told of the story, most end up seeing it, and loving it. The plot is not all that great, but it is a change from the norm. And one big plus I liked about this film was here is a slasher film that deals with almost all women, an idea that doesn't always happen in this type of movie.

The cinematography of this film is spectacular, the setting is somewhere I'd hate to be alone, and the atmosphere is quite chilling, which sets the stage for an outstandingly creepy witch-masked killer to get down to business with a good selection of weapons. John Vernon and Samantha Eggar are great as director and star of an upcoming movie. It was on cable HBO when most of us were kids. Cool poster too. I only hope that in the future there will be a sequel to this gem to introduce new viewers to this frightful, severely underrated, movie.

Well how far would you go to become famous? Apparently, in this film it means murder. Samantha Sherwood has worked with the well-known director Jonathan Stryker on all his major films. She naturally assumes she has been given the title role in his latest venture, "Audra". He tells her that she needs to do some background research on the part, so arranges to have her committed to an asylum (as Audra is a former psychiatric patient). She goes along with this, not realizing that he intends to leave her there indefinitely and audition six young women of various professions for the part instead. She finally manages to escape, and returns to the spooky old mansion where the auditions are taking place. But who is causing the disappearances of the young hopefuls?? Is it Samantha? Stryker? Or is one of the actresses willing to kill for the coveted part?? Just who is the killer in the old hag mask? one of the Great hidden slashers with a few great death scenes. Not bad acting, and a creepy hag mask worn by the killer (someone you will never think of btw). To go on, Curtains brings a few good things to the slasher genre. Best scene in the film is the ice skating scene, anyway worth a watch!

As a long time fan of horror movies, I've seen a lot of great movies and horror that simply wasn't scary. This scared the life out of me! This is a true classic that needs to be released on DVD, with any extras that may be available. There is a scene in here, where the masked killer is skating toward the camera with a sickle in their hand.....brrrr, I'm getting goosebumps just thinking about it! If you are a fan of whodunnit horror films, you've seen this. If not.....it is highly recommended viewing if you like a good mystery with horror thrown in. This is a true classic that I hope will be released on DVD in the near future.

Curtains, a virtually unknown Canadian slasher by a virtually unknown cast and crew, well the director was the cinematographer on one of the Ilsa of the SS films.

This almost forgotten film is in desperate need of a great transfer, the only copies available are VHS and VHS to DVD versions. Bleak winter atmosphere, creepy dolls on rainy back woods roads, a killer in an old woman mask with a sickle and a scary mental breakdown performance by Samantha Egger (The Brood).

An overbearing director charges six beautiful women to stay with him in his dark secluded mansion for the weekend to bear everything in an audition for a role in his upcoming film. Jealousy ensues and the women back stab and betray each other until they die off one by one. The lavish death scenes are cruel, like a Giallo and the pace is formidable for a slasher, but the unconventional twist at the end demands a re-watch to follow characters motives.

Curtains was shot in 81 and released in 83 but it feels like a mid-70's horror film, in terms of atmosphere and cinematography. 8 out of 10

While CURTAINS may never gain the notoriety of a HALLOWEEN or FRIDAY THE 13th, it's miles above the other cookie-cutter slashers of its time. The plot revolves around a casting call for the coveted film role of "Audra" in which six actresses are assembled to compete for the part at a grand mansion in the dead of winter. One by one they are eliminated but just who is doing the slicing and dicing?

Production problems in the middle of the shoot delayed filming and the movie took nearly two years to be completed, so parts of it do feel a little disjointed, but what's here is still a fun ride. The ice rink scene is one the best stalking scenes ever and rivals anything else from the slasher boom. Samantha Eggar lends an air of class to the whole thing and Lynne Griffin is a delight as the wise-cracking stand-up-comedienne. And that hag mask far surpasses Jason Voorhees' hockey mask or Leatherface as one of cinema's creepiest visages.

The film also has a special place in my heart since it was filmed not far from here in Muskoka, ON and a minor Burton Cummings hit "You Saved My Soul" can be heard several times on the soundtrack. The print looks absolutely fantastic! Synapse Films have outdone themselves here and there is a lengthy interview with the directors, Lynne Griffin and Lesleh Donaldson that gives insight into the troubled shoot.

Toss your bootlegs and order this now!
