Play Misty For Me Movie Review


Play Misty For Me Movie Review

So, one the things we're trying to at the Horror Hideout is I am trying to catch up on some old school movies and review them. I did the Burning the other day. Now play Misty for me. For any one that doesn't know Play Misty For Me was directed by Clint Eastwood and starred Clint Eastwood, Jessica Walter, and Donna Mills. Clint Eastwood plays a radio DJ named Dave Garver who is essentially a player but, still loves a ex-girlfriend named Tobie who had left but, recently returned. Well, anyway right before she returns he meets a fan in a bar who had been calling in to the station to request "Play Misty For Me". He has a bit of a hit and quit it with this gal and she becomes obsessed. Now as alot of our readers have read I am more of a slasher flick kinda horror guy more than a supernatural guy. I will say Clint has a winner here and I know why its considered a classic. Now anybody that liked Fatal Attraction should really like this movie. I liked it better than Fatal Attraction.
Jessica Walter is a full blown psycho that won't get the hint when Clint tries to rekindle his love for his ex Tobie. Jessica begans a torrid right turn straight to nut bag. Stalking, and just showing up at places. Being jealous and writing out Luv you's in lip stick on his bedroom mirror. And she then follows the international nutty bitch playbook by trying to kill herself to keep his attention. Now, this is not a horror movie exactly but, there are definite aspects of slasher flick with this movie with a couple pop up on you scares. Eastwood would show early on his cinematic skills with direction. With a wonderful setup leading to a finale you can see coming a mile away and of course Eastwood would show off that famous punch of his he had in the Every Which Way But Loose series from the 70's. So if you haven't seen this. Go to Blockbuster or Netflix and order it. Its definitely worth the watch. I give Play Misty For Me 3.5 axes out of 5.
