solange-poster-smallEditor’s note: The hosts of Horror Movie Podcast are always impressed by the knowledge and insights of our listenership in the emails and voicemails that we receive, as well as in the comments here at HorrorMoviePodcast.com. This year we’ve asked several of our listeners to participate in our 31 Days of Halloween by contributing written reviews.

Title: What Have You Done to Solange?
Country: Italy/West Germany
Year: 1972
Director: Massimo Dallamano

The film opens up into the idyllic picture of two lovers, Enrico and Elizabeth, wasting the day away in a canoe out in a secluded area of London. Their fun is interrupted by Elizabeth’s brief awareness of a woman possibly running on land and a glimpse of something shiny. Not wanting to share their private spot, this causes Enrico and Elizabeth to leave. The next morning the news breaks that a woman was killed in the woods that Enrico and Elizabeth were in with the only witness to the crime being Elizabeth. The only problem is that Enrico is a married man and he’s a teacher at a Catholic High School to the underage Elizabeth. Continue reading

The opening 10 minutes or so of 1977’s “Orca” are exceptional, and get the movie off to a great start. Following the credits, we meet the title creatures (two of them, to be exact), who seem to be enjoying each other’s company as they swim along. While this is happening, researcher Dr. Rachel Bedford (Charlotte Rampling), in full scuba gear, is underwater collecting samples. Suddenly, a great white shark appears, causing her to hide.

Captain Nolan (Richard Harris) and the crew of his fishing boat: Novak (Keenan Wynn), Annie (Bo Derek) and Paul (Peter Hooten); spot the shark’s dorsal fin jutting out of the water, and rush forward to capture it (an aquarium will pay them top dollar for a live shark). Dr. Bedford’s assistant Ken (Robert Carradine), who was waiting in a raft for her to return, warns Captain Nolan (armed with a spear gun) that there’s a diver down below. Continue reading
