Deadfall (1993) (part 6 of 6)

Suddenly, we cut to a dark room, where Joe is meeting a man wearing Dr. Evil’s suit, who also has a huge pair of golden garden shears for a right arm. Goddamn, movie, you gotta warn a dude before laying some shit like this on him!

Holy shit!

This is Dr. Lyme, played by Angus Scrimm from the Phantasm films. Yes, we are deep into the weird here, folks, as it would seem that based on his line readings, Scrimm is still playing his Tall Man character. Just watch those films, then this one, and tell me I’m wrong.

As to why the man has a mechanical arm with golden garden shears? Hell if I know. I’m still trying to figure out if Charlie Sheen was supposed to be Satan, and just what the hell Nicolas Cage was on during his scenes, man. My brain can only take so much!

    In a sense this is Cage’s greatest performance. The movie isn’t very good and when Cage leaves it falters. Stuff like the mechanical arm is just too much. But Cage was right in the sweet spot, being absolutely insane and hilarious. I know people like Vampire’s Kiss but he tops it here.
