If you are going to purchase this film, just make sure it is the uncut R1 you buy as there are several cut versions of this released all of which are a drastically watered down american tv print. Anchorbay released that butchered abomination in the UK recently, shame on them, so make sure you avoid that at all costs. So order the uncut version and sit back with a beer and take a trip down 'hollywood boogalard' with one of the craziest b@stards on screen, its well Worth it!
Lots of nudity and violence abound, and the nutcase doing the women in hams it up in a big way. Some nice sequences and shots, especially in the scene inside the massage parlour. Recommended.
The killer in this movie has a boring name, no distinguishing characteristics apart from stockiness, never even acquires a media-generated nickname, and has a fetish for women's stockings - but he doesn't let that get him down.Read more ›
Don't Answer the Phone is an unapologetic exploitation classic. It has pimps, hookers, naked girls, an awesome boom-chicka-wah-wah sub-porno soundtrack and a fascist cop. It is everything that the average high gloss pseudo serious serial killer epic pretends not to be. All the ingredients are exactly the same except more upfront, the ending is cooler and no one stares mournfully into the middle distance to make it seem more like a legit drama
Star of the show is Nicholas Worth, as crazed Vietnam veteran and photographer Kirk Smith. He uses his physical bulk and genuine strength to menacing effect, plus makes a great gibbering maniac. Flo Gerrish is not that bad as the radio psychologists he plagues. James Westermore is suitably stony faced as the lead detective and Ben Frank is fine as his sidekick.
Don't Answer The Phone is not very well regarded and was never going to win awards for tact. But I like its, honest, B-grade values. It was shot in 18 days without permits and has a gritty look and is all the better for it.
The presentatation is remastered from the original negatives and is in Anamorphic 1.78:1 widescreen. There are signs of age, but it's uncut. Exras include commentary from director, Robert Hammer, an audio interview with James Westermore and an onscreen interview with Nicholas Worth.
