BLACK SUNDAY (Theatrical release USA 1977)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.2|5.0 Starsìììì

Black Sunday—interesting work for Bruce Dern and Robert Shaw—turns itself into a good terrorist movie. It drives itself on the theme of taking out evil any way one can. It works as a B-grade film for the adult audience and earns the status of one watch.

? Yes? No? Maybe?

Yes. It serves as a good watch for seeing Robert Shaw in one of his later works and Bruce Dern in one of his earlier works. Marthe Keller deserves kudos for her performance in the movie.
