Horror movies Review
Wealthy people are getting notes from “The Patrons of the Rich” offering “protection” for a large sum… and those who don’t pay wind up brutally murdered! Inspector Weston of Scotland Yard is joined by the FBI’s Cpt. Allerman (Star Wars’ Christopher Lee) to expose the deadly secrets of London’s underworld, where every dark street corner could be hiding a vicious killer bent on protecting The Mystery of the Red Orchid! Based on a novel by the popular Edgar Wallace, this stylish installment in the continuing series of German krimi thrillers features a great scene where “Two-Gun Lee” deals with a gangster hitman. Also featuring Klaus Kinski (For a Few Dollars More), Marisa Mell (Danger: Diabolik), and Adrian Hoven (Mark of the Devil).
Then the spirit of Jack the Ripper seems to be very much alive in 1960s London as a series of brutal slayings by the Monster of London City has Scotland Yard baffled. In a macabre coincidence, a new play about the famous murderer is about to become a major West End hit… and the leading man is rapidly becoming the prime suspect!
