What are people saying?

  • Holyphool's rating of the film Man Trap

    Wildly toxic pulp noir, that feels like sleazy drive-in material with adult themes sexualised by the swoony actors - Stella Stevens fabulous as a sexy alcoholic wife-slut and Jeffrey Hunter as the gorgeous victimised husband - David Janssen as the mate who leads him into crime as it spins 'em out of psychotic control. Beautiful high contrast b/w imagery so reminisce of Suzuki in its classical story telling.
