2 good films for the price.
Whoever Slew Auntie Roo is a deliciously warped fairytale-like story with quite a few familiar faces from UK films and TV and a twisted "happy ending" John Waters would be proud of.
In What's The Matter Helen, Shelley Winters and Debbie Reynolds play the mothers of a pair of convicted murderers in the 1930's. To get away from the bad publicity and anonymous, threatening phone calls they move to California and open a dance school for children. Adelle likes a good time and is soon dating a Texas millionaire while the deeply religious and slightly unbalanced Helen stays locked in at home because she fears intruders. They think they are safe until the phonecalls start again and bad things start happening. Someone is out for revenge but who is it? And what is the matter with Helen? This has to be one of the campest psychological thrillers ever made. Good fun with some ketchup gore.
The only slight problem is that the sound on the Auntie Roo disc isnt brilliant so you have to turn the tv up quite a bit, but then again for 40yr old movies that have not been digitally remastered you cant expect cinema sound quality so that is why I am still giving 5 stars
