Thriller (redux)

Hookers revenge?

4 Responses to “Thriller (redux)”

    I dunno… “They Call Her One-Eye” is a pretty stupid alternate title, but it does give it the feel of an old-school western. Doesn’t really fit, but it has a certain hookey charm.

    • Cecil:

      It’s odd, none of the titles really feel appropriate to the movie. Thriller is the best of the bunch but it’s not really a “thriller”. They call her one eye would have made sense if this was a western or if they made some sort of reference to it in the movie. Hookers Revenge sounds like it would be the alternate title to Avenging Angel.

      • Cristiona:

        Sadly, “Hooker’s Revenge” is probably the best of the lot, as terrible as it is. I mean, she was a hooker and she did get revenge. It also invokes a suitably exploitation theme, and is perfect for a grindhouse flick. It’s just too bad that it sounds so stupid.

        Then again, I suppose “Death Wish” is a pretty goofy name too if you look at it in isolation.

        • Cecil:

          It is the one that is closest to what the actual film is about but it just sounds so shallow. If it was a bit more over the top like a lot of exploitation then it probably would work better. As it is, the whole movie has this sad quality to it that the title just doesn’t fit.

          I don’t think Death Wish sounds all that bad but I guess I’m just used to hearing it. Speaking of odd titles I have one coming up later in the year that takes the cake for WTF movie titles.
