It’s the matryoshka doll of B movies. “Mute Witness” is a 1995 slasher movie filmed on location in Russia about a slasher movie filmed on location in Russia that stumbles upon a snuff movie filmed on location in Russia. A hint of noir is supplied by the fact that our perky American protagonist is mute (thus the title). Longtime Russian actress Marina Zudina plays the perky American, while longtime British actress Fay Ripley plays her not as perky sister. Alec Guinness briefly appears in an uncredited role. It was his last film. He didn’t exactly leave on a high note.

Nobody wants to admit it today, but around 1991, the mullet hairstyle was popular with pretty much everybody, not just trailer trash. And nobody sported a longer, bleached-blondier mullet than Brian Bosworth, the college football star and NFL has-been. He made his debut in the cliche action B movie “Stone Cold” as a cop who plays by his own set of rules. He infiltrates a biker gang and lots of things blow up. His movie career did not. He is still seen in various B movies and reality shows today, sans mullet. But we still remember that mullet. We remember.
