TV Round-Up

Lake Bell in Children's Hospital (s3e3). This aired Thursday night. It's one of those non-nude nude scenes, but kinda cute anyway.

Here are two zip files of clips of Carlee Baker and Anya Monzikova in Something Like Murder (1, 2), the third episode of Cimemax's new Femme Fatales series. This one aired May 27th. There will be one more long clip from this show tomorrow. This was directed by Mark Altman, the same guy who's doing the re-make of My Tutor.

 

 

  • * Yellow asterisk: funny (maybe).

  • * White asterisk: expanded format.

  • * Blue asterisk: not mine.

  • No asterisk: it probably sucks.

Brainscan's mailbox:

For those who may have wondered, as I did, about the identities of the two women in Brainscans wonderful clip from Caribbean Papaya (yesterday's Funhouse), Sirpa Lane is the blonde (originally from Finland). The brunette, equally gorgeous, is Melissa Chimenti.

Hostage: The Christine Maresch Story

(1983)

Another set of rare VHS captures.

Hostage, also known as "Savage Attraction," is a drama/thriller based on a true story, set between 1974-1979, about an abused girl Christine (a Michelle Williams lookalike, Kerry Mack) who escapes to a traveling carnival where she meets a German dissident Walter (German actor Ralph Schicha) who is working as a handyman at the carnival. He takes an immediate liking to her and after she dumps her latest dud boyfriend, Christine starts going out with Walter. Things develop quickly to the point where Walter asks Christine to marry him and when she declines he shoots himself. In hospital, Walter gives her an ultimatum; marry him or let him die. So, Christine reluctantly marries Walter.

Big mistake.

It seems Walter is the possessive type and he has plans to go back to West Germany. Events occur that make his passage back home viable, but she gets pregnant (for the second time) and she wants an abortion. He tells her to get one in Germany. In Germany, things are about to get very very bad for Christine. Turns out Walter is a part of a neo-Nazi group who want to take West Germany. And he's an armed robber and he's going to force Christine into it as well as the higher ups don't think she is down with their little social group. And there's more...

Wow, if this is a true story then fuck me. I haven't even gone into the more outlandish aspects of the movie including the film turning into Dead Calm (before Dead Calm), Walter immediately taking Christine to a zeppelin field once they enter Germany, a truly bizarre sequence in Turkey and of course 'Baby with a Crossbow'. There's so little restraint in this film that it's almost impossible to take seriously. And when things slow down, which is rare, a nude scene is thrown in with the gorgeous Kerry Mack, so the film is hard not to like, but whether it's any good is another matter.

And Hostage: The Christine Maresch Story was the second highest grossing Australian film of 1983. How did that happen? And how is film not on DVD???
