I was watching The Beyond (1981) last night, and the main protagonist of the film is played by Catriona MacColl. I was surprised at how cute she was. Literally, I sat up in my chair a bit, because her being cute was completely out of left field.
And I don't know why I was so shocked. Italian exploration films of the 70's and 80's thrived on, among other things, using sex to sell their movies. Perhaps that's precisely why I was so shocked though. MacColl has kind of an unassuming, girl next door look, as opposed to the typical look they go for in Italian exploitation films, which is oversexualized, gigantic pillow breasts, type women. MacColl has a nice look. I like nice women.
