Dungeon Of Harrow: Terrible Movies #109
A miniature clipper in someone's bathtub or the ocean during a fierce storm crashes against rocks I guess and the two lone survivors stagger around on a beach in a film that seems 30 years older than it actually is. Nothing else really happens. Stage-y acting, except by the lead who seems to have been abruptly awakened from a deep nap. Badly mic'd haughty dialogue. An inappropriate score that seems to have been stolen from several other movies that doesn't sync up with the action onscreen. Pitifully executed action sequences that consist of awkwardly tripping and rolling around under a net. Actors seem to carefully place weapons around the room in anticipation of the upcoming fight scenes, and as if the director didn't know to say "cut", an actor drops his axe and the opponent allows him to pick it up and have another go. And the villain accidentally breaks the fourth wall and looks into the camera. There are so many awful moments and continuity errors, I just stopped after a while, because what's the point? Epically terrible, and seems light years longer than a 70 minute runtime. I watched it on Hulu, and you can watch it below, but why would you?
