Interface (1985)
Review by Michael Mahoney

5 / 10
I can barely think of an appropriate response to this film.

This conspiracy-driven action/horror/comedy mix is something that was certainly an experience to view. It wasn't particularly good, and the horror vibe sort of disappeared about halfway through the film, and instead felt like some cheap conspiracy thriller, mixed with comedic quips every other sentence, yet it still maintained a high level of violence.

I'm not entirely sure what this movie was going for. I'll admit that much of the comedy I found amusing, partially because the two main characters, played by John S. Davies and Lauren Lane, had such a goofy, over-the-top style. Early on, the film was just odd, what with a prankster starting a shoot-out, a man being killed by a phone call, and a prostitute being blown up by a television (talk about sentences you never expect to write).

Which isn't to say the film wasn't odd later on - it just followed a slightly more generic route, with a bunch of people attempting to kill the two main characters, almost exclusively with firearms (which is why the film feels much more action than horror past a certain point). This isn't also to say the film isn't amusing, because it really can be. The problem is, it's not consistently so.

The biggest problem, though, is that the plot didn't seem to know where it wanted to go. If it stuck to a more horror feel, I think that it'd have done more for me. And those Atari/electronic voices annoyed the hell out of me, on a side-note. Interface is a strange movie that might do more for you than it did for me. I'd just recommending watching it, and see how it goes, but don't expect too much. 5.5/10 (rounded down to 5/10 to fit site's format).
