Thread: GIRL IN ROOM 2A from Mondo Macabro!

  1. #21
    Sorry to hear you didn't like this one, Dom. Also sucks that your copy stopped working. I haven't heard about any other cases like this, so I hope yours is the only one. To be honest, GIRL isn't one of my favorites either, whether as a MM release or a "euro-cult" movie. But "the single least competent feature" you've ever seen? Wow, that's harsh. Personally, I've seen many, many dozens worse. But to each their own. Didn't like SINNER either, eh? Top 20 Franco for me. How did you like LORNA? Don't give up on MM. They have some really great and unexpected things in the works. Stay tuned. But blind buying always has its risks, so maybe read plenty of reviews before you commit!

    Lorna was interesting. Not necessarily a great flick but heaps of unusual elements and there's a certain insanity to it all which is all I ask for from MM.

    But "the single least competent feature" you've ever seen? Wow, that's harsh.
    Harsh yes but I'd stand by it. It hurts my brain to watch this film. If you don't see what's wrong then it it's hard for me to explain it without sitting next to you with a remote control but as a single example of what I'm talking about have a look at this cut (video is unlisted by the way):

    Pretty much every minute has some major technical gaffes that turn my brain inside out while I'm watching. Franco might play fast and loose with the zoom lens and not be the greatest focus puller but he has an understanding at a base level of how you construct a film. That's not here in a way that I think is quite unique.

    Your guess is as good as mine, I was curious how many were done black so I pulled out all of my MM which I own all I think.
    The ones that are clear used to be black.

    I seem to be one of the few who like this film. Mondo Macabro scores again!

    I can't imagine this film, no matter how shitty, can out-crap the likes of Manos or Andy Milligan.

    I don't understand this lukewarm attitude to GIRL IN ROOM 2A. Not a top 10 giallo but I really liked it. Wasn't to keen on it when I watched the lousy fullscreen video print some 5-6 years ago but thought it worked much better on this excellent DVD presentation, where you actually could see what was going on. Felt like hybrid a hybrid between gialli and US drive in horror, which is fine by me since I like both, but perhaps the problem is people were expecting something like a Martino or Miraglia flick? Anyway, if this is the worst film you guys have ever seen, I envy you.

    Not even close to bottom of the barrell. Not a Giallo high point maybe but I enjoyed it and the DVD is really slick.
    Rock! Shock! Pop!

    And whats wrong with andy milligan? I know he isn't to everybody's taste but I think the guy made some really interesting films considering how little money he had to use

    A lot of things are wrong with Andy Milligan, as evident in his films (which I find fascinating).
