Awful Film Might Appeal to Those Who Enjoy Bad Movies
28 August 2016 | by See all my reviews

Lost, Lonely and Vicious (1958)

* (out of 4)

Really awful drama about Johnnie Dennis (Ken Clayton), an up and coming star in Hollywood who has some sort of weird fascination about death, which causes issues with some of his friends but mainly the woman (Barbara Wilson) who loves him.

LOST, LONELY AND VICIOUS is a pretty awful movie from start to finish but it also contains some really awful stuff that makes it worth watching if you enjoy bad movies. The lead character is obviously meant to be James Dean and this film is obviously trying to tell the story of a "deep" and talented young man but one with many issues.

The problem here is that there are so many dialogue scenes where characters just sit around talking but these chats are so darn boring that you can't help but get tired of them. Even worse is the fact that the performances aren't strong enough to really make you care about the characters or their situations. All of the talk leads up to a final ten minutes that are pretty strange and outrageous. As awful as the film is, these final moments almost make it worth sitting through.
