Monsignor Quixote (1987)- a waste of of talents, prototype ITV comedy drama premiere - Alec Guinness as David Jason. Euston does Graham Greene does Don Quixote, with all the visual flair of a substandard BA ad. Like El Dorado if made by Euston.
Watching 1980's Humanoids from the Deep. It's okay. But it's too routine,
there's none of the quirkiness of a John Sayles script, and the monsters
are good, but there's none of the florid colour of your typical Doug
McClure fantasy film. i.e. what this film needs is Ron Pember and Keith
Barron. It needs a Joe Dante. It is like the Boogens, another well-shot, well-designed horror - with cool monsters but little else.
The Unseen (1981) - Barbara Bach (before she became Barbara Bachhkkkeeeee (said in Scouse accent)) meets baby-monster. 80s slasher, sort of like a more evil, more straightforward The Baby (1973) if done as an episode of Brian Clemens' Thriller, with annoying eccentrics a la the Avengers, and a nice Michael J. Lewis score, which belongs to a better film. It features the Danish colony of Solvang, which is an interesting location, and sadly not enough is made of it. But it does have a bizarre chicken-used-as-a-torture weapon scene.
