5.0 out of 5 stars Bloody Bird 14 Nov 2012
By West25
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The film opens with a troupe of actors rehearsing in the theatre late at night, it's a musical about a mass murderer known as The Night Owl. During rehearsal, one of the performers named Alicia sprains her ankle. Without telling the overbearing director, she and the wardrobe mistress, Betty, sneak out to go and see a doctor. The only place near by where a doctor would be is the mental hospital, so they decide to take a chance and go there. The doctor on duty decides to make an exception and agrees to help. Whilst there, Alicia asks about one of the patients and is told that it's the notorious mass murderer, Irving Wallace, an actor that went beserk and chopped sixteen people up into little pieces. Whilst Alicia was getting her ankle treated by the doctor, Wallace kills an orderly and puts him in his bed. The two girls leave and head back to the theatre, completely unaware that they're giving a lift to an extremely psychotic hitch-hiker. Once they arrive back, Alicia heads back in hoping the director hadn't realised she'd gone, leaving Betty to park the car. Alicia is then told by the smarmy director to go home, but to clean out her locker before she leaves. She packs her things and heads out to the car where she makes a gruesome discovery, Betty has taken a pickaxe through the face. She runs back inside and the police are informed, they seem certain the killer has left the area but a police car will be parked outside all night. The director being the kind-hearted man he is, decides to change the name of the killer in the script to Irving Wallace and asks everyone to stay behind and continue rehearsals, he also asks one of the actresses called Corinne to lock the door and hide the key.

5.0 out of 5 stars It'll Be Owl Right On The Night 27 Oct 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
After injuring her ankle, Alicia(Barbera Cupisti) takes a break from the stage production she is starring in to visit a hospital for treatment. However the hospital her friend Betty drives her to is for the criminally insane, and when the two women return to the isolated location of the theatre, unknown to them they have a passenger, escaped serial killer Irving Wallace.
Betty is murdered in the car park, and the police post a guard outside the theatre. Meanwhile, sensing profit from Betty's death, director Peter(David Brandon) keeps his principal cast and crew behind to discuss a new angle for the production. However, there's someone else wanting to get a starring role. Wallace has been locked inside the thetre with the others and decides to start his own full blooded production.
I am a big fan of director Michele Soavi's work. Compared to his later films such as La Chiesa, La Setta and Dellamore Dellamorte, Stagefright might on the surface seem like a very minor film. It is, however, one of the best slashers ever, a masterclass in sustained tension, wringing every drop of suspense out of what is quite a slim narrative.
Even though I've now seen this three times, there are still a couple of scenes that make me jump. As Wallace stalks the boards, the theatre makes for a very eerie location, especially with the tailors dummies scattered about, the silent audience to the carnage. The acting is all right, with John Morghen/Giovanni Radice impressing as Brett, and Cupisti excellent as the resourceful heroine. The music score is great.
The only thing that grates with me a little are the last few seconds of the film, when Soavi winks at the audience through the eyes of his killer. Still, that's a very minor grumble, as Stagefright is a superb horror film, and maybe the Blue Underground all regions dvd release might encourage people to buy this neglected classic. 5 out of 5.

5.0 out of 5 stars region 0 actually...but what a mad film! 22 Sep 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Regarded as a slasher flick but there is not that much slashing,more thudding pick axe!This film is frankly nuts but highly entertaining,and delivers violence wise,some great,inventively gruesome set piece killings,one of which is so surprising I'm tempted to turn spoiler but won't.It's the directorial debut from Italian Horror maestro Dario Argento's most prodigious pupil,Michele Soavi.I was inclined to give it 4 stars for lack of extras,it's a bear bones release,one of Blue Undergrounds earlier releases only offering a trailer&Soavi bio,and that's yer lot but what you do get is an uncut,region 0(usually listed as reg 1 but double check with seller)fantastically enjoyable slice of mayhem!.The murderer uses a Giant Owl mask/costume,I'm not sure of this but it must be the biggest head disguise in horror cinema,knocking off a crew of young actors rehearsing a musical(about a horror no less!)who look amusingly like failed auditions for 80s triple cheese fest"Fame",best of which is John Morgen who really is as camp as a row of pink tents,this is the hard man from Cannibal Ferox&equally,well more,demented guy in Cannibal Apocalypse,prancing and dancing in spandex,classic!The violence thus feels unexpectedly high,stylish but with a knowing sense of it's place,it's purpose is to entertain fans of crazy horror flicks and it's mission accomplished,never a dull moment,nothing complex,It's not"Dellamorte Dellamore"(aka Cemetery Man)or"The Church"(La Chiesa),great films by same director,Stagefright is very different with tongue firmly in cheek compared to the better known,far deeper and darker Soavi films I mentioned,just leave your brain at the door and be entertained!
