That's where Hauser comes in as a Hollywood detective assigned to the case of just why this guy needed two girls for his Psycho shower scene. Wings Hauser directs this one, and stars in it too, falling into a lot of actors-directing-themselves traps: making himself look too cool, making his lifestyle seem too glamorous, giving himself a lengthy and fairly unsparing sex scene with heaving-bosomed Kathleen Kinmont. The film this guy is making doesn't seem destined for any kind of distribution which bars it from being a true snuff film ; exactly who he intends to see it is never suggested. When some of the people he knows turn up dead, he takes it personally, and as he gets closer to the truth his girlfriend is endangered.

The cop is periodically romanced by Kinmont, a woman he barely knows but seemingly can't stay away from him.

I will never forget the first time I heard All Things Must Pass. It is an idea particularly well suited to an exploitation film like this in that it comes uneasily close to certain truths — the way that exploitation cinema, not unlike the filmmaker in the story, recruits aspiring actresses hoping to break into the big time and gets them to take their clothes off with great regularity. To relate it back to movies discussed here on this site, the plot is really very similar to 1990 , in the idea that it lures unsuspecting actors into their death on film.

I love movies where people get hurled out of windows. Whenever Wings Hauser shows up, you are guaranteed a good time. Great action and not boring for one second! Think Robert De Niro and Christopher Walken. Once filming, the evil cameraman actually kills them. A slippery 80's saxophone slinks through the score of the whole movie, helping give it a glitzy-nasty sheen that makes it a passable tribute to an era of movie sleaze just barely gone by in 1991. It has something for everyone: guys sawed in half, a man who runs while holding a pizza, the smoothest jazz this side of the 405 freeway, and a pet rabbit on the beach.
It was like somebody was whispering to me: 'Yogis of the Himalayas. He's also a bit to violent to people who attack him, and starts the movie with throwing a woman out from a window. The young actor is dead, but the director has the shot. The cops answer a call about a domestic disturbance and break up fight. Epstein won't be able to keep the group together or help out when it's over. He is a ham-fisted actor whose arrogance and enthusiasm renders him incapable of nuance. His work as actor and director is still admirable.

Yeah, Dark Breed is one of my favorites! Pollard, both are more extended cameos and are fun. It is a disappointing and uninteresting film.
