Editorial Reviews

GIRL ON THE RUN (1953, B/W, 66 Minutes): A hootchy-kootchy whodunit set at a small seedy carnival where a reporter tries to discover who killed his boss while his girlfriend inexplicably joins the burlesque show! Pure carny-noir. THE NAKED ROAD (1959, B/W, 74 Minutes): When a woman is left with a corrupt Judge as collateral for a speeding ticket (say what?!), a Good Samaritan bails her out... then holds her prisoner as a future sex slave in this utterly off-kilter, truly weird Weird-Noir. THE SEVENTH COMMANDMENT (1961, B/W, 82 Minutes): A preacher with amnesia and the power to heal (!) quickly plunges into the gutter when his ex-girlfriend-with-a-grudge shows up to blackmail him in this marvelous pulp mix of sex, revenge, and outright obsession! FEAR NO MORE (1961, B/W, 78 Minutes): Accused of killing a woman on a train, Sharon Carlin runs home to find another corpse there too! FALLGUY (1962, B/W, 62 Minutes): Hot shot teen Sonny Martin stops to help the victim of an auto accident but quickly realizes he’s stepped into a murder in progress. STARK FEAR (1962, B/W, 85 Minutes): After the abusive husband of cult fave Beverly Garland disappears, you’d think she’d celebrate. Instead, she tries to find the bum and, as expected, things get worse.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rare rare rare August 29, 2013
Verified Purchase
The other reviewer is bang on in everything he writes but one thing I'd like to comment on is the rarity of these films. Five of the six films I had never heard of. And I am a film buff who collects older oddball stuff. Sure, the cynical will say... "with good reason thes are obscure" and that is true. No true gems here, but as a collector of rare films this package was a delight and I thought the digital transfers were all well done.

3.0 out of 5 stars Trenchcoat Fare November 19, 2012
Much like I would suppose they were designed to do when first released, these six re-packaged B-Movies tend to suggest from their appearance that there is much more going on that what eventually shows up onscreen. The title itself (Weird-Noir) is a bit deceptive too; there are really only two movies here that I would consider weird or off-beat, and none are classic noir. Of course, everyone's definition of both those terms vary so widely that it isn't worth the time picking them apart. At the time they were made, they probably WERE quite weird.

For those with more prurient interests, there is no nudity in any of these films, though a lot of women in slips and swimwear. Sex is only implied, but a pretty consistent theme. In four of the six films, young, attractive women are at the mercy of ruthless pimps, gangsters, crooked cops and crazy husbands, which might appeal to certain types; of the other two, one is a femme fatale who has the man under her thumb, and the other is a frame-up story with little feminine intervention.

The picture and audio quality ranges from bad to serviceable. Fear No More has probably the best production value, the best all-around acting, story and quality. The Seventh Commandment is probably the worst of those same categories. The others range somewhere in between, but mostly at the bottom. All of the films are in black and white, all from the 1960's, and all presented in 4:3 aspect ratio. No subtitles or special features are included.

***1/2 Fear No More - Is she crazy or is she being framed for murder? Former mental patient fears she's headed back to the looney bin. This is as close to normal entertainment as these discs get.

** 1/2 Stark fear - Beverly Garland and Kenneth Tobey star.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tremendous collection! November 28, 2013
Verified Purchase
This is an absolutely great set that any fan of film noir or low-budget oddities should purchase. The six films were very thoughtfully chosen for both their commonality and their diversity, and watching the movies in quick succession, as I did, is extremely stimulating. This is emphatically NOT a collection of "so bad they're good" movies - instead, their "weird" qualities challenge established norms of film-making AND viewing. I love "Mystery Science Theater 3000," too, but there is a time to move beyond snark, which is after all a form of defensiveness against the unique elements such movies might have to offer. Each of these films is unique, rewarding, and worth encountering in an open, inquisitive spirit.
