(aka "Daughter of Death" or "Bad Blood")

 

directed by Paul Nicholas
1983

 

Young Julie (Isabelle Mejias, MEATBALLS III) loves three things in her life: her daddy Harold (Anthony Franciosa, TENEBRAE), chess, and her eight-foot pet python. She hates a lot of things, but her mother Irene (Cindy Girling, MEATBALLS) is at the top of the list. When Irene gets rid of the snake and wants to send Julie to camp, Julie flies into a rage. Fortunately (for Julie), grocery delivery man Weston (Paul Hubbard, FUNERAL HOME) accidentally kills Irene during an attempted rape before fleeing town. Now Julie has her father to herself; that is, until he introduces her to stepmom Susan (Sybil Danning, THE HOWLING II), who has a son of her own Dennis (Benjamin Scholl). After Dennis nearly suffocates in a disused refrigerator on the property, Susan implies to Julie that nothing will get in the way of her happiness. When Weston is arrested for roughing up a hooker, Julie deliberately does not identify him in a line-up and approaches him later to blackmail him into killing Susan. Susan sets up her plan (which includes getting rid of Weston once he has done his job), but she may have severely underestimated more than one of her players. Paul Nicholas (CAGED HEAT) directs.

Comments

Code Red has given JULIE DARLING - mastered in HD from the original 35mm interpositive - an anamorphic, dual-layer transfer (the film is 5.78 GB of the total 7.13). The image is very clean, apart from some rare spots of dirt and the reel changes. The audio is generally strong, although some of the live sound dialogue should have been looped.

Stars Isabelle Mejias and Sybil Danning are both featured in the film's 24-second introduction, separate commentary tracks, and separate interviews. The commentaries and interviews focus more on the actresses' careers and only intermittently on the films. Trailers for other Code Red releases round out the package.
