But despite some flaws, it's a good, committed movie, definitely worth watching; it's not quite the classic its defenders claim, but is far from the comic disaster that others want it to be.

When Rob Tapert met Sam Raimi, younger brother of Tapert's college roommate Ivan, they immediately started making short films together, which Sam had already been doing while in high school with his friends Bruce Campbell, Scott Spiegel and others. Eventually, their ambitions increased, they managed to scrape together money from investors, and went off to the woods of Tennessee one shivering winter to make THE EVIL DEAD. None of them had even been on a movie set before, but they turned out a film that dazzled hardened horror-movie mavens such as Stephen King, who loudly and frequently endorsed the wildly creative movie.

Overall, using the Italian cut rather than the rearranged, cut and rescored American International release is a good idea, but there is a significant loss: the voice of Boris Karloff. In his brief opening and closing scenes as host, and in the "Wurdulak" sequences, the only one of the three stories he appears in, he's been dubbed by an Italian actor. Since Karloff was speaking English on the set, his voice was probably recorded; it's too bad those tracks weren't found. Granted, this would have meant that he alone (and possibly Mark Damon) would have been the only ...

title: Frankenstein's Daughter function popUp(URL,NAME) { amznwin=window.open(URL,NAME,'location=yes,scrollbars=yes,status=yes,toolbar=yes,resizable=yes,width=380,height=450,screenX=10,screenY=10,top=10,left=10'); amznwin.focus();} document.open(); document.write(""); document.close(); studio: Image Entertainment starring: John Ashley, Sandra Knight, Donald Murphy, Felix Locher, Sally Todd, John Zaremba, Wolfe Barzell, Harold Lloyd, Jr. release year: 1958 film rating: One star reviewed by: Bill Warren "I need a brain," says Oliver Frank (Donald Murphy), a fact that at this point in "Frankenstein's Daughter," seems self-evident. He's really Oliver Frankenstein, of course, proudly trying to carry on the family tradition, with pretty much the usual results. This time, the monster is female, though since it's played by homely, male Harry Wilson, we have to take that idea on faith.

title: The 4th Floor function popUp(URL,NAME) { amznwin=window.open(URL,NAME,'location=yes,scrollbars=yes,status=yes,toolbar=yes,resizable=yes,width=380,height=450,screenX=10,screenY=10,top=10,left=10'); amznwin.focus();} document.open(); document.write(""); document.close(); studio: A-Pix Entertainment starring: Juliette Lewis, William Hurt, Shelley Duvall, Tobin Bell, Austin Pendleton release year: 1999 film rating: Two-and-a-Half Stars reviewed by: Abbie Bernstein ‘The 4th Floor’ is a low-budget borderline horror thriller that succeeds in being extraordinarily creepy, though it suffers the problem that is rampant in the genre – it deflates once we know what’s going on. Juliette Lewis plays Jane Emelin, an independent-minded New Yorker who would rather move in to her late aunt’s fabulous rent-controlled townhouse than cohabit with her loving but vain TV weatherman boyfriend (William Hurt). The apartment is on the fifth floor. Jane’s neighbors are all older and apparently eccentric but harmless – but the apartment directly below her is reportedly inhabited by an old woman who can’t bear any sort of noise.
