The curiously titled So Sad About Gloria is more of a thriller than a horror and tells the story of a young woman released from an asylum and trying to start her life afresh.<br/><br/>Starring Lori &quot;The Beverly Hillbillies&quot; Saunders our heroine is a very wealthy lady who immediatly meets a suitor upon her release. But is she truly well again? And what part will those around her play?<br/><br/>I was actually enjoying the film, Saunders was excellent and it very much saddened me that she didn&#39;t have a bigger career. She hasn&#39;t worked since 1980 and based on her performance here that&#39;s a real shame.<br/><br/>The film is well paced and interesting but has some severe flaws. For one the actual camera work is poor, I don&#39;t mean the traditional cinematography I mean the cameras used. The quality is poor and the scratches and blemishes on the lense are unforgivable!<br/><br/>To make matters worse the soundtrack is really quite bad, it&#39;s over the top in places and truly cringe inducing in others.<br/><br/>As if all that wasn&#39;t enough the story trails off, it doesn&#39;t deliver which is very unfortunate as I was really getting into it.<br/><br/>Despite the flaws the film is watchable, if you can get past the patchy writing and embarassing unprofessionalism there is entertainment to be had and Saunders is postively mesmerizing.<br/><br/>The Good:<br/><br/>Lori Saunders<br/><br/>Some decent ideas<br/><br/>The Bad:<br/><br/>Camera quality is awful<br/><br/>Incredibly cringe inducing soundtrack<br/><br/>Story sadly doesn&#39;t deliver<br/><br/>Things I Learnt From This Movie:<br/><br/>I suddenly have the overwhelming compulsion to climb a tree

For a basically no-budget thriller, this isn&#39;t really all that bad. Director Harry Thomason went on to produce the first-rate TV series &quot;Designing Women,&quot; Dean Jagger was an Academy Award-winning actor, and Lori Saunders, best known for playing one of the sisters in &quot;Petticoat Junction,&quot; is actually pretty good in a very atypical role. The plot about a recently released mental patient who may or may not be committing a series of ax murders isn&#39;t particularly original, but the film does achieve a degree of suspense, and Saunders does a good job--for the most part--of conveying the anxiety and confusion of a young girl who isn&#39;t sure if she&#39;s a serial killer. The film is definitely hampered by its next-to-nil production values, and Thomason obviously had quite a bit to learn about directing--mainly about pacing and continuity--but it&#39;s not a completely botched effort. And Lori Saunders is just so damn cute it&#39;s hard not to give her the benefit of the doubt. But then again . . .<br/><br/>Anyway, it&#39;s worth a look. (However, there&#39;s another Harry Thomason film that isn&#39;t: a bottom-of-the-barrel sci-fi stinker called &quot;The Day It Came to Earth.&quot; Absolutely rancid. Skip it.)

A great axing scene, overdone directing, excessive use of music, and some terrible acting by the lead heroine equals B movie heaven. Elvira ragged on it and MST should have; it is that much fun! This movie does manage to create a weird doomed kinda feel to it that is unique and kinda fun. If you like B movies (and you know you do otherwise you would not be reading this), check it out for a fun 90 minutes!
