Peter’s Retro Reviews: Barracuda (1978)

Tweet by Peter Nielsen ”Something deadly in the water… more dangerous than any shark or killer whale!” Here’s another one that slipped past me when I was young!

Somewhere in the back of my mind there’s a little voice telling me I saw this in the theater, but I honestly don’t remember. I might have, but I’m not sure, so don’t hold it against me. What…

Peter’s Retro Movie Review: Body Double (1984)

Tweet by Peter Nielsen Jake Scully is a struggling actor going between his acting classes and a starring role in a low budget vampire movie. One day he has a little “incident” at the set, caused by his claustrophobia and the director sends him home for a rest. In the small part as the director I think you’ll recognize Dennis…
