Review: Damn this movie is just plain weird. I mean weird weird weird.
Love Me Deadly plays like some romantic soap opera, except it’s about a chick her gets her rocks off by getting busy with dead guys. The happy happy piano music & the corny soft lens romance interlude section is so freakin strange. Reminds me of that part in Benji when he frolics with his lady dog friend to the song ‘I Feel Love’.
Mixing it up with the bizarre storyline, the familiar actors & it’s all quite absurdist, yet it’s all played very melodramatic & rather casual. It feels like an Italian gothic horror film from the same era, just replace satanists with a necrophiliac cult instead.
Hmm…well i have no idea why this is rated slow low. Cool 70’s fashion, a chick that’s into necrophilia and ……Lyle Waggoner! Although this plays like a TV movie from the 70’s with nudity, some gore and chicks fu**ing dead dudes, it’s actually pretty good! The corpse loving isn’t the thing that’s messed up in this flick…….it’s the beginning when the credits are rolling that you know things have gone into 42nd street sleaze. I wonder if Lyle Waggoner had this on his resume when he auditioned for Carol Burnett!
