“u0026quot;Campyu0026quot; doesnu0026#39;t adequately describe THE SENTINEL, Iu0026#39;m not sure what does! If for no other reason, but to see actors of the caliber of Martin Balsam, Ava Gardner, Jose Ferrer, Arthur Kennedy, Christopher Walken, Chris Sarandon, Eli Wallach and Burgess Meredith all making fools of themselves, is an opportunity you simply cannot pass up in this dumb tale of yet another gateway to Hell!u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eCristina Raines plays Alison Parker, a willowy model who decides to move in to a spooky Brooklyn apartment building, remarkably similar to that which Rosemary and her baby recently vacated. Looks like the place is managed by the same body corporate! Tenanted mainly by the aforementioned actors, Miss Raines soon discovers that things are just not kosher somehow. Scenes decidedly campy and less so, blur both her and the audienceu0026#39;s lines of reality. Worthy of an academy award alone is that where Raines is seated opposite Du0026#39;Angelo watching her masturbate. The camera remains on her face as she begins to crack-up in obvious embarrassment at Du0026#39;Angelou0026#39;s antics – who wouldnu0026#39;t have? Itu0026#39;s arguably the shot of the century!u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eMichael Winner directs with his usual u0026quot;God knows what this is gonna turn out likeu0026quot; philosophy. Responsible for such good films as THE MECHANIC and such losers as DEATH WISH 4, its a 50:50 proposition with ANY of his pics!u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eHorrific or laugh-out-loud funny? you choose! Outrageous fun though, however you look at it!”
