THE PYX

 The Pyx Movie Review

Junkie prostitute Elizabeth (Karen Black House of 1,000 Corpses, Firecracker) is found dead, having fallen from the top of a building. Now the detectives have to piece together the events leading up to her death. Though included in a horror movie collection, this is very much more a crime drama with the only bit of “horror” being very near the end—and calling that horror is a stretch. Black’s performance is a strange one, shifting from pretty good to really bad at the drop of a hat. This movie has an interesting story but the delivery is just poor, mainly because the acting is bad throughout. Another thing really distracting that takes a lot from this movie is the sound quality. It is barely audible at times. I do like the reel to DVD transfer, however, as the movie jumps at times—this isn’t for everybody, of course, but I enjoy it. Few things of any real interest happen in this movie, and the end is a cross between the bizarre, the boring, and the anti-climatic. This isn’t a horrible movie, but it's not one I would recommend either.
