Lana Turner Overdrive

LANA TURNER OVERDRIVE from Helsinki Productions on Vimeo.

Screen legend Lana Turner takes a hallucinogen-fueled journey deep into her own inland empire in this mix-up from director Michael Frost. Life becomes stage becomes cinema as Lana spins out of control over loss, regret, spiteful teenage stepdaughters and LSD substituted for mom's Valium.

For my loving if reserved praise for the rather slippery source material, 1969's THE BIG CUBE, click here. For my review of FOUR FLIES ON GREY VELVET (1971), here. 


  1. The Big Cube might not be QUITE as great as this video, but it's definitely essential viewing. I do love some Lana, though...

    Excelente video

  3. What is the original source for the female vampire character that's interpolated into several scenes. . .

  4. Totally not sure, it almost like Marilyn Manson- it's certainly from a newer source, so I'd guess it's whatever weird goth band comes on at the end

  5. That's from the Ivan Zulueta film ARREBATO. Check it out!
