I haven't written in this blog in months! I'm going to start contributing to my brother's cult movie blog, called Theater Of Guts. I've only done one review as of yet, but there will be more in the future. So, you'll probably find me on there more than here, although, that blog's films come from not just Netflix exclusively. Anyway, thanks for reading and there might be a new entries on this blog and here and there.

Like much "Giallo" films (usually strange Italian mysteries with gore sometimes sprinkled throughout), I didn't expect "Short Night Of Glass Dolls" to have anything do with its title. I was right, there are no "glass dolls" (at least from what I could tell) in this movie. Just like another visually arresting Giallo called "Lizard In A Woman's Skin", the title has very little to do with the actual story line of the movie. This so so movie was saved by its super disturbing orgy ending and medical classroom conclusion. The rest was just okay but I was still definitely curious as to what was possibly going on. Its told from the perspective of a man who's presumed to be dead, even though he's completely conscious of where he is, yet can't seem to move his body. He's straining to remember how he got to where he is, so the film is a series of flashbacks of him regaining his memory.

This is the 1950's animated TV version of the "Felix The Cat" cartoon. In this episode called "The Magic Bag", he carries around a Louis Vuitton style bag (Felix must've been pretty wealthy!) that helps him in whatever task he has. Felix needs assistance climbing a high tree, so a ladder is enclosed in the small bag so he can reach the top. A mad scientist type character sees this and tries the snatch the bag away from him. This show is ridiculously cute.

This is a poorly made documentary.
