Targets (1968)

TITLE:  Targets

YEAR RELEASED:  1968

DIRECTOR:  Peter Bogdanovich

CAST:  Boris Karloff, Tim Kelly and Arthur Peterson

MINI-REVIEW FROM STEPHEN JACOBS: “After Roger Corman claimed Karloff owed him two days work, Peter Bogdanovich was tasked with creating a new film to utilise the actor. Karloff starred as Byron Orlok, an ageing horror star who, disillusioned with the times, has decided to retire from the screen. Meanwhile, a disturbed Vietnam veteran, Bobby Thompson [Tim O’Kelly], embarks on a shooting spree, beginning with his wife and mother, and ending at a drive-in theatre where Orlok is making his farewell appearance. Karloff is great playing, essentially, himself. His recitation of ‘Appointment in Samara’ (which caused the film crew to spontaneously applause) is a highlight.”
