STRIKE ME DEADLY (1963)
This is cult director Ted V. Mikels' first feature and it's not very good but I guess everyone has to start somewhere. The movie here starts out with a guy getting shot in the forest for sleeping with this other fellow's wife and then this other guy stumbles across the scene and gets chased and chased and chased. This goes on for a good half hour then we get a hostage situation and then some flashbacks, that are really dull, explaining how everyone knows each other or something and then it ends with more running through the woods. There's really not much here to recommend this one and I was kinda expecting this to be more of a sexploitation/roughie kind of deal which it isn't at all. Mikels next two films, DR. SEX and ONE SHOCKING MOMENT, are in that category so I should probably check those out at some point.
Christ! Even the trailer is full of running!:
