The acclaimed comedy team of Lanny Morris (Bacon) and Vince Collins (Firth) are at the top of their game when a beautiful woman is found dead in their hotel suite.

Now, years after the breakup, journalist Karen O'Connor (Lohman) resolves to uncover the truth that lies beneath the mysterious incident.

Extras:
Scene Access

My Thoughts:

Decent. Plenty of gratuitous nudity and sex for all. Kevin Bacon plays seedy characters quite well and he doesn't disappoint with this one either. Colin Firth surprised me as I'm used to him playing a puff in most films but he had a bit of a hard edge in this one which is ironic as his character was a closeted homosexual. The worst thing about this movie is that the pair were supposed to be portraying a comedy duo that rivaled Martin & Lewis but there was absolutely nothing funny about their stand-up bits. I'm sure that was meant to be secondary to the murder mystery but it was SO bad it was hard not to notice.

Burnt Offerings, a review by GSyren


TitleBurnt Offerings(9-007150-061739)
DirectorDan Curtis
ActorsOliver Reed, Karen Black, Burgess Meredith, Eileen Heckart, Lee Montgomery
Produced1976 in United States
Runtime111 minutes
AudioGerman Dolby Digital Mono, English Dolby Digital Mono, Commentary Dolby Digital Mono
SubtitlesEnglish, French, German, Spanish
OverviewMarian (Karen Black) and Ben (Oliver Reed) find it hard to believe that for only $900 they've rented a sprawling old country mansion for the entire summer. But as they settle into their isolated estate with their son and Ben's aunt (Bette Davis), they find themselves surrounded by a living presence, an evil, hypnotic, occult force that feeds on torture, fear and murder. ...Burnt Offerings
My thoughtsYou can't go wrong with Oliver Reed, Karen Black, Burgess Meredith and Bette Davis, right? Well, no, not in this case anyway. The only fly in the ointment is the kid, Lee Montgomery. I found him a bit annoying, but not to the point where it hurts the film. The really scary character, though, is Anthony James as the leering chauffeur. And Karen Black at the very end of the film.

It's not the scariest haunted house film, but it is quite creepy at times. It builds up rather slowly, but I never got bored. This isn't really my favorite genre, but I still found it entertaining enough.

A fun episode. I liked the whole test thing they put Sabrina through... was worth a few chuckles.
