With that in mind, here are nine great things from and about the film in no particular order.
First off is Deborah Foreman who plays Sarah, the female lead. Foreman is one of those 80's chicks who pop up in a lot of movies from this period and are just fantastic. She fits right in with Catherine Mary Stewart: pretty, likable and a bit of a badass. The sort of girl you really want to hang out with.
|She does sort of look like The Joker when she smiles though. But hell, I can work with that!|
2. Maximum O'Keefe for your money
3. John Rhys Davies for Nair
4. David Warner... Just David Warner
5. Two butlers for the price of... Well, two
Hans is played by 2'9 Hungarian ALF performer Mihaly "Michu" Meszaros. Michu is quite memorable here, combining a squeaky Bela Lugosi accent with a stern, authoritarian attitude (he pushes Junior around like nobody's business) and while he doesn't get a lot of time on screen, he makes the most of what he does get. If the film had been made fifteen years earlier, Angelo Rossitto would have probably gotten the role. And of course, like the former, he gets a really memorable death scene which we get to later. It's generally the mark of a good character when you wish there was more of him or her in the film, as is the case here.
6. Patrick Macnee: Still Avenging after all these years
7. The VHS you can't resist!
8. Monsters galore and gobs of gore!
9. Deborah Foreman will put a foot up your ass!
Come to think of it, that's exactly what it is!
Honestly, the film sort of can't top that, really. I do like the little "Well, that's done" thing Foreman does afterwards, though.
And that's it for Waxwork. Until next time...
