Bad Girls Have More Fun

Eben McGarr's Sick Girl (2007) was something that was recommended by Netflix and looked intriguing (see that movie poster). For a indie (low budget) horror flick, it's not a bad watch even if the motivations of the "sick girl" aren't exactly clear. She seems to kill bullies but makes some questionable choices. Worth a look. (note: the short film doc on the DVD is more interesting) 6.6/10

Roy Ward Baker's The Vampire Lovers (1970) is another old Hammer classic running on NWI right now. Better than average plus the gorgeous Ingrid Pitt but not near the top. Essentially a vampire Marcilla infiltrates a family and horror ensues. Still required viewing for all Hammer horror fans. 6.8/10

Sadly it was announced today that Tura Satana passed away. She was like a lightning bolt; short lived career but tremendous impact & influence. She'll forever be an unforgettable icon in all of cinema. Felt it was appropriate to finally watch Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill! (1965) that's been on my DVR for over a year. Been saving for the right occasion. Just wish it wasn't this. Still an awesome flick in every way. 7.5/10
