"W"... Suspense Beyond Words
Terror Is A One Letter Word - "W"
When Will "W" Strike Again?




The famous model of the 60s with the alias Twiggy (her real name is Lesley Lawson) starring in this strange mystery thriller with some even notable members. I remember how great impression I had caused the amazing cover of the VHS when I had rented from video club. A wonderful artwork accompanied by the enigmatic phrase "terror is a word one letter" to proϊdeaze for big things. Course content is not proportional to the magnificent "decor" but aren't and apathetic. Certainly this forgotten movie with heavy atmosphere worthy reminder.

The case revolves around a couple who falls victim to evil attacks in the form of sabotage and not only. In the opening scene, we see the woman of the couple (Twiggy) to kickstart car but due to some "damage" he brake the garage of their home. Something similar happens later her partner in the work of the port. His car is nailed onto a moored boat and he barely managed to jump from the vehicle having been the worst. The sneaky attacks are continuing and all have one thing in common: the letter W appears everywhere. In car doors, the walls of the House, in the bathroom mirror. …
The couple suspects that actor is the former husband of the woman who normally should be in jail for the murder. Argh, an interesting plot point. The woman is considered dead by the authorities, killed by paranoid her husband but the corpse was not found (apparently because he lives and escaped hidden from the authorities). But the former is actually behind the facts, or does something else?

Horror Trivia

The film has been released and with the alternate title "I Want Her Dead."

The case of the "W" really excited. Up to the Middle film is extremely exciting and riveting, rousing viewers to think of all possible explanations. Chaliomaste a bit by the inadequate interpretations of the couple (Michael Whitney and Twiggy) but more than the mass arranged that will follow as well as from the conclusion of the whole drama. The interpretations of the pair isn't anything bad just not display that emotion befitting in drama experiences. Thus look slightly detached from the story but anyway is tolerated. Less tolerated is some scenario weaknesses better not say to avoid spoiler.

Unfortunately the ' W ' we do not indemnify nor in the finale where we expected a dynamic scaling as the logical conclusion of the accumulated volume of shock events. This is inelegant, ending lower in circumstances that gives you the feeling that the film remained unfinished thus leaving a bittersweet taste. However, we must recognize the existence of a genuine atmosphere of mystery and drama. For the record, let us note the presence of the young then Dirk Benedict, whom we met primarily from the series "Battlestar Galactica" and "A-Team ' but the chabalediariki show of Eugene Roche known from numerous participations in sitcoms, comedies as well as the famous" AJAX man "in American advertising of dishwashing detergent" Ajax "in the 70s.
