Girly (1970)
Movie Review by The Spastic Cannibal
12.12.11

Girly (1970) "Girly" is an all-around nutty British dark-comedy. I can only describe the total baffling weirdness of this one as being sorta reminiscent of "Spider Baby, or the "Maddest Story Ever Told" combined with Ted Post's "The Baby"...

Two siblings, along with their emotionally detached mother and nanny, live a confused life based entirely on make-believe and isolation. Despite being young adults, the brother and sister act as children - sleeping in cribs, playing with toys, and adhering to their domineering mother's incessant and nonsensical system of rules. Part of their bizarre routine also consists of luring men back to their house and ordering them to conform to their "perfect" family unit. If their complacency is deemed insufficient or rules are broken by the "new friends" the family makes sure they are killed. Eventually, the newest "friend" develops a sordid sexual relationship with both mother and daughter which causes a bit of a rift in their "picturesque" idea of family solidarity and it all begins to collapse.

The entire concept of "Girly" is just perplexing and, at the same time, hilarious. All of the characters are named after their role in the film - Mumsy, Nanny, Sonny, and Girly - which was funny because they seemed to say eachother's names CONSTANTLY. Especially hearing the word "Mumsy" spoken in a British accent. Funny shit. Vanessa Howard as Girly was particuarly great and made for an awesomely deranged character. Didn't really understand why the captive "friend" character didn't just escape, though. How hard would it be to fight off two idiotic grown children and a couple of old broads?

The film got a DVD release pretty recently after having slipped into complete obscurity soon after it's initial release. So I'd urge anyone into whacked-out cinematic oddities to pick up "Girly" and have a head-scratching chuckle.
