BCI's AFTER DARK THRILLERS consists of two double-side recorded DVDs with two movies per side. Transfer quality of these unrestored films is adequate.

SYNOPSES--

BLUE MONEY-- NOT the 1985 Tim Curry film. This one stars Alain Patrick as a man whose involvement in adult filmmaking is his undoing.

CLICK-- When a fashion photographer brings some models to a remote ranch to shoot some "snuff" pics, a crossdressing psycho killer "nurse" targets the girls. Slow first hour is washed away by gore afterward.

DOUBLE EXPOSURE-- The police and a shrink suspect that a fashion fotog who has recurrent nightmares of slaying his scantily-clad models may be the slasher terrorizing their city.

FRENCH QUARTER-- Bruce Davison, Virginia Mayo and all the primary actors have dual roles in this story of a girl relocated to the Crescent City for the sake of work who dreams she lives in the 19th Century. Fine jazz soundtrack accompanies this unique story.

HOT TARGET-- Titillating tale of American woman married to a Kiwi who takes up with a fellow Yank cat burglar. Story is incidental to the numerous bedroom scenes.

NIGHT CLUB-- Young couple spend their last dollar then borrow from a mobster to finish converting an abandoned warehouse into a club. When business is poor they're hard-pressed to pay back the usurious loan.

PICK-UP-- Two hippie girls hitch a ride on a cool dude's mobile home bus. The three get lost in the Everglades after some bad weather.

SEPARATE WAYS-- Great cast in this story of a bored married couple who are both having affairs.

The quality of the titles selected for these B-movie packs usually runs the gambit from "surprisingly good" to "I want those 90 minutes of my life back." Few of the movies in "After Dark Thrillers" actually qualify as thrillers, but there are some that qualify as worthwhile viewing, especially if you stick to the movies made before 1980.

The Good
- BLUE MONEY (1972): A pre-"porno chic" era pornographer (Alain Patrick, also this movie's director) struggles to balance work and home life, but a cute young starlet (Inga Marie) and an FBI investigation threaten both. Though rough around the edges and not really a thriller, this one actually has something to say about changing mores of the times and the consequences of buying into them. Barbara Mills is excellent as Patrick's wife.
- SEPARATE WAYS (copyright 1979; released in '81): An upper middle class housewife (Karen Black) embarks on a path of self-discovery when she learns of her husband's (Tony LoBianco) cheating. This poor man's "An Unmarried Woman" may be out of place on this DVD set, but it's still worth watching. David ("An American Werewolf in London") Naughton has a small role as a college student who seduces Black, and Sybil Danning has an even smaller part as a sales woman at LoBianco's car dealership and, remarkably, doesn't seduce anyone.
- PICK-UP (1975): Two sexy hitch-hikers, (Jill Senter and Gini Eastwood) are picked up by Alan Long in his motor home for a ride that leads to a sexual frolic in the Everglades -- until they're terrorized by a bunch of rednecks in a pick-up truck. Not much of a story but plenty of '70s grooviness, delivering on the sex and nudity, with a smattering of violence and plenty of disorienting side-trips. This title is also available on "Drive-in Cult Classics, Vol. 1.

I really didn't like this collection of films. Part of the problem is that several of the films really aren't thrillers Separate Ways for example is more a domestic drama of a marriage in trouble, while Night Club is drama about trying to open a night club.

Mostly I didn't like this set because I really didn't like any of the films. In all honesty this is probably the first collection of films like this where I really didn't like any of the films enough to even contemplate watching any of them again. The best film in the set is Separate Ways, with a French Quarter a close second (its ruined by over use of an annoying lens filter). Those were the only two of the 8 films that I actually watched all the way to the end without hitting the fast forward. The remaining six films were an endurance test for me and what was to be several nights viewing turned into a single evening marathon as I scanned through this truly poor collection of films. After the third bad film I just wanted to find a thriller that I was going to make the effort worth it. None of them really are.

I know that the cost of the set is rather cheap, but unless you have a reason for looking for one of the films included I'd take a pass and pick up another set instead. Frankly I only paid five bucks for this and to be perfectly honest I feel ripped off.

These Films Were Great But Its Crazy Because I Feel Like I Bought This Before Just In Another Name. But Hey I Like Movies So Hey Just Means That I Have An Extra Copy That's All Good. The Movies Were From The 60's Erra To The 80's Erra So They Have There Ups And Downs Depending On The Film.
