Mesa of Lost Women (1953) (2007) Horror Movie Review
Horror movies Review
Two people are found wandering in the desert. They are brought back to a local clinic where upon recovering from sun stroke the man wants to immediately burn “it.” “Burn what?” you say. Well He slows down to tell the tale of a Doctor on a remote mesa that is a little ahead of his time working with you guessed it Lost Women and things best left to nature. We are now in for a 70 minute flash back.
With great actors as Jackie Coogan (you can tell he must be the bad guy with a huge mole on his face), Allan Nixon, Tandra Quinn and Delores Fuller, You know it can not go wrong. Yeah, sure.
The dialog gets a little boring and some of the screen play (by Herbert Tevos) is a little disoriented. I suspect that much was cut out for brevity; so we must make great leaps and assume we just missed something.
There is a great dance scene by Tarantella (Tandra Quinn) that would subdue Captain Kirk had he been there.
Do not worry though we have wonderful background music by Hoyt Curtin that consists of an off key flamingo guitar and a spinet that won’t spin; I think they are trying to sound Spanish; you get to hear it during the beginning credits; You get to hear it during the narration (by Lyle Talbot); you get to hear it every time a suspenseful scene appears; You get to hear it every time one does not; you still hear it when the DVD is safely packed away.
