Curfew (1989)

The film centres around two brothers Ray and Bob Perkins who after breaking out from prison, seek out revenge on the judge and D.A. who sentenced them to death row for raping a 16 year old girl.

This one has been on my to watch pile for about the last 5 or 6 years so I was looking forward to it somewhat. Unfortunately it's a huge pile of dog shit with only a few redeeming qualities.

The major draw and win for this film is the fact that it stars the iron jawed and Kelly Osbourne lookalike Kyle Richards, formerly little Lindsey Wallace from Halloween. The only other plus point in this turd is the bad-ass 80's synth score which rocked my world every time it was unleashed, again though it was badly used.

All in all this is a terrible movie and one which I believe was also banned at some point, or at least put forward for cuts by the BBFC. I have no idea why or how this was possible as there is nothing to suggest even the slightest bit of terror. The gore is fairly low and the acting was abysmal.

If you've been drinkling heavily and want to laugh at something pointless, and you have nothing else to watch i'd say check it out. Other than that i'd steer well clear of this one.
The star rating is based purely on the synth score, nothing else.
