Performers like Ann Jillian and Loni Anderson probably partially owe their careers to this actress, TV's go-to Dumb Blonde for 60s sit-coms. She was very familiar to late night TV audiences during the 70s and early 80s.
Oh man.. my ongoing top fantasy is going back in time, collecting Olivia Newton-John and Lynda Carter at their sexiest, and bringing them back to the present in my hot tub. Or bed. Or the former, then the latter.
Tonight I watched did a horror double feature; two films that I knew very little about except that they were relatively new released I hadn't seen yet. First of all I watched
HIDDEN (2015) A family has hidden underground, in an old fallout shelter, for almost a year now. Ever since some sort of runaway virus turned most of humanity into hulking creatures they call "Breathers" who wander the wastelands overhead, searching for any who are not like them. Brilliantly acted, this film builds suspense and saves its real punch for the last 15 minutes or so. Alexander Skarsgard (Eric Northman from TRUE BLOOD) does a great turn as the father, and child actress Emily Lind is brilliant as his daughter Zoe. I really enjoyed this one. 4.5/5
NIGHTLIGHT (2015) This film had a very lame premise, to be honest. Five high school kids take off into the haunted Covington Forest to play "Flashlight games" in the dark. Seems this forest is a magnet for young people contemplating suicide - dozens, maybe hundreds, have wandered into the woods and never come out. So what could possibly go wrong? Short answer: EVERYTHING! Oddly enough, though, despite the lame premise, this movie worked for me. There were lots of flashlight shots of waving foliage and shaky cam footage as the characters ran through the woods in the dark, yet somehow the combination of darned good acting and some interesting twists along the way kept me invested throughout. It does have a bit of a BLAIR WITCH PROJECT feel to it. but overall, I found it to be quite enjoyable. 4/5
