The Ambulance (1990) Eric Roberts

The screenplay is very clever, the dialogues are well written and there isn't a dull moment in the entire movie. 'The Ambulance' isn't a horror film so the deaths aren't as sadistic as in other Cohen films and there's also the lack of pungent social criticism.

" Date: 3/2/2022 Viewed: Blu-ray Re-watch Note: I'd been looking forward to rewatching this film because I remember seeing it once on TV as a kid back in 1996. I recently got a good deal on the Scream Factory Blu-ray and decided to watch it tonight. The Ambulance isn't Larry Cohen's best film, but it's still enjoyable. The premise of the film is terrifying with a group of insane people that uses an ambulance truck to kidnap people by convincing them that they will rescue and care for them afte"
