    RED HOLLYWOOD does sound quite interesting for all sorts of reasons, and I’d certainly like to see it. As far as THE RED HOUSE I have to say I am in full agreement with your assessment here, though I’d add that Miklos Rozsa’s beautiful score may well be the film’s most invaluable component, even ahead of Edward G. Robinson’s valiant attempt to subvert what you rightly assert as “mediocre rural gothic melodrama masquerading as noir horror.” There is no question at all that Davies’ direction is listless and the film only catches fire at the end, when it is too late.

    Nice framing here Tony!
