|Maren Jensen, Sharon Stone and Susan Buckner in Deadly Blessing (1981).|
First film in which Sharon Stone (pic, centre) spoke. Deadly Blessing is Wes Craven's third title that contains many of the elements that would've made it a great 80s horror flick if not for a mind-bogglin endin that many didn't like. Also contains the only nude scene Battlestar Galactica siren Maren Jensen (pic, left) ever made, apparently. The other historically significant thing about this movie is that Ernest Borgnine (old guy with a 50-year career) won Worst Supporting Actor at the 1982 Razzies. What's it about? Three chicks facin the Amish-like, ancient Anatolian community called the Hittites (who didn't get good tourism cred in this movie, that's for sure).
Bad news on the doorstep:
Couldda had more substance about the Hittites, instead of the usual "no technology allowed" refrain. Story is very ordinary although it has the right feel.
Reminds me of:
Watch out for:
Snake in bath tub scene with Maren Jensen.
Most memorable line:
Vicky Anderson: "So who are these Hittites anyway, Amish, or what?"
Lana Marcus: "No connection. According to Martha, the Hittites make the Amish look like swingers."
