Silver Slime (1981, FRA) C-15m. n/r D: Christophe Gans. Starring Aissa Djabri, Isabelle Wendling. Short film by CRYING FREEMAN and LE PACTE DES LOUPS director Christophe Gans, made when he was twenty-one. A young woman is stalked by a leather-clad assassin - or is she? Interesting, over-the-top experiment, an homage to Italian slasher movies. Dedicated to Mario Bava, who died a year earlier, though this is closer in spirit to a Dario Argento. Gans also edited and scripted.
