It looks like this will be April’s only entry in the AMG Dirty Dozen: at least it is a fair­ly action-packed entry.  It’s drawn entire­ly from Your Humble Reviewer’s 2003 reviews for All Movie Guide and the bill of fare includes Jacopetti and Prosperi’s best mon­do-shock­er, a psy­cho killer flick that dou­bles as a com­men­tary on movie addiction/the down­side of Hollywood and a goth­ic hor­ror tale built around the mime skills of Marcel Marceau!  Mea Culpa Department: for once, this installment’s mea cul­pa refers to a film that was over­praised instead of under­praised — Private Duty Nurses (the review here doesn’t over­praise but it’s too easy on the film nonethe­less).
