3.0 out of 5 stars Wings Hauser Makes This Film Interesting Dec 1 2011
By B-Movie Man - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This is another 80's VHS nostalgia movie that I had to see on DVD. Scorpion's pimping these horror movies out with class, and I respect them for it. The movie itself is really a ghost story with a few slasher-type kills, but the kills aren't gory. The real draw to the film is Wings Hauser and his connection with the house he's fixing. The job must be done, and nobody's getting in this carpenter's way.

That said, it's not the greatest movie. It's boring about sixty percent of the time. The special effects are cheap. This is all for the camp value of Wing Hauser's performance. I'd say if you're a collector, buy it, if you're curious but not a hardcore old school horror fan, rent this before buying.

For a slasher, this has a ghost story, a romance sub-plot, and of course, a crash course in home building. Good, but not great. Fun, but not a knee-slapper. This movie gets a big "It's just okay."
5.0 out of 5 stars Wing's Old House April 28 2016
By Adam Adiment - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
It's essentially Canadian style Stephen King with some Twin Peaks tossed in for good measure. Here Wings Hauser, blessings and peace be upon his name, plays a carpenter with a tendency to absolutely ruin rude and untidy people. He finds plenty of those unsavory types when he meets the owner of the new house he's working on. Pretty soon nail guns are being used as guns and drills are being used on softer surfaces.

It's all pretty goofy but it's kept on point by Wings doing his thing. He's completely unhinged here from the first frame he shows up in. There's really no build up to him being crazy. I got no problem with that. All out Wings is a lot like all out Nicolas Cage or Christopher Walken. It's wildly entertaining and actually pretty darn good acting of the James Cagney variety.

The rest of the movie is decent enough. It's clearly Canadian despite them trying to hide it. They have too many denim jackets and mullets for it to not be Canadian. It's got some appropriately Twin Peaks / David Lynch like moments that don't quite make it all the way but that has more to do with David Lynch's particular tastes than the failure of the film makers. I'd still have preferred Sherilyn Fenn to be honest.

Most importantly, Wings hair gets properly crazy. Walken and Cage level crazy. I hope some day that Wings gets his proper due or some sort of retrospective. I know most of this has been kinda cheeky but he's actually a great actor who brings energy and sense of fun regardless of the role he's playing to any production no matter how bad it is. Few actors are that dedicated.

Wings is not around as much as he use to be (I did see him in RUBBER recently and a few TV programs), but he use to be all over movies and TV in the 80's. This is not a great film, but Scorpion Releasing always manages to find the best-looking prints and this is the Unrated version to boot. BTW: If you are looking for a film by Scorpion Releasing or Code Red, there is no better seller than the_exterminator. The prices are usually lower than what Amazon charges and they are not used copies.
