31 Days of Horror: Eyes of Laura Mars (1978)

eyes of laura mars

As my silly little Garcia Poster note indicated I watched Eyes of Laura Mars today. It is kind of an American take on the Italian Giallo with Faye Dunaway playing a photographer who suddenly gets visions through a killer’s eyes. The murderes are all of her friends whom she gets to watch get stabbed to death while the deed is happening.

Tommy Lee Jones is the detective solving the case. It is based on a story written by John Carpenter and was directed by the guy who did The Empire Strikes Back. It is full of lush, soft photography of half-naked women (Faye’s specialty is of beautiful women in their underwear murdering handsome men in tuxes). It is all pretty silly and a little trashy and kind of awesome. I’ll have a full review up soon.
