Hard Ticket To Hawaii (Andy Sidaris, 1987) Review

Find more exploitation reviews here.

“We need to figure out what just happened … let's unload and hit the jacuzzi. I do my best thinking there.” Where on earth do you start with a movie like this? From the heyday of Cinemax (or 'Skin-emax' as it was nicknamed) comes this none-more-80s explosion of exotic locations, big hair, bigger guns, rampant nudity, and a giant snake contaminated with weaponised cancer … yes, you read that right, and it's far from the only utterly insane thing that happens in this flick...

FWOAN Interview with Ali & Lucy...

"For Want Of A Nail" producer Ali Causon and director Lucy Joan Barnes were recently interviewed as part of the FEEDBACK Female Film Festival, which took place last month in Los Angeles.

True to its name, the festival organisers provided video feedback from audience members for each screened film.
What motivated you to make this film?
Lucy (director): The script and it’s message, it was not trying to “sugarcoat” what having OCD is really like.. it was showing how intense it can be for the person who suffers from it.
Ali (producer): Although I was not looking for a script that specifically focused on mental health, after reading FWOAN just a couple of times, it felt like a natural follow up to my previous short about PTSD.  

From the idea to the finished product, how long did it take for you to make this short?
Lucy: I believe it was about a year…
Ali: Writer Nick and I had been working together for a few months before mainly to find a director we wanted to work with. Lucy, Nick and I then ran a development workshop with volunteers from OCD Action and Actors to learn more about the condition.
