The Movie

Roger Vadim, who's infamous in the US as the director of Barbarella, came up with another twisted sex film about lesbians and housewives and and a guy in a bird suit--I guess. I've never seen it--it's not the sort of thing that runs on tv much. But Joanna Cassidy's in it and I'll watch anything she's in--once.


The Music

It's harder to evaluate the score when I haven't seen the context it was meant for. It's quiet, it's moody. It sounds like a train wreck up against Game of Death.


Release Notes

As far as I know, this never saw a release on its own. When Silva released it on CD, they paired it up with Game of Death, for reasons I never understood: they also released a double soundtrack, Starcrash and Until September. Night Games is a very quiet, moody score, and it sounds like a train wreck when matched with Game of Death. Starcrash would have made a far better match.
