Daddy's Little...kidnapped sex slave

The Pitch: A sweet innocent teen gets mad at parents and runs away with her boyfriend only to be nabbed by porn producing, flesh peddling pimps. Ex-cop Dad must search high and low through pages of cliches to rescue his baby girl.

In celebration of the upcoming NEW "cop Dad searches for clues about his daughter" film EDGE OF DARKNESS starring Der Fuehrer Gibson - hot on the heels of Liam Neeson's surprise box-office hit TAKEN (Eurotrash pimps kidnap American gals)-- I wanted to remember that these themes were covered 30 years ago in George C. Scott's HARDCORE.

Here is the scene where disguised Dad meets porn star "Big Dick Blacque" in Hollywood.

Ps -- No matter how much ass Dad kicks in the end... there is some subtle cuckold fetish angle that must appeal to the studio suits who green-light these films again and again.

HA! I forgot all about "Big Dick Blaque!" Damn ... good call on that sick humiliated Dad angle - yeah, there is something on that one, not to mention wacko Mel "Sugar Tits" Gibson himself.

Think you will find "Edge Of Darkness" will be a lot different than "Hardcore"
Unless of course Hollywood totally stuffs up the original story line from the TV series starring Bob Peck & Joanne Walley.

Ah yes...

Edge of Darkness follows a Boston detective (Mel Gibson) investigating the murder of his activist daughter, uncovering political conspiracies...and TERRIBLE Massachusetts accents in the process.

I am sure sicko Mel was fighting for more scenes of cuckoldry and sadism.

If you haven't seen the original BBC series, Edge of Darkness (also directed by Martin Campbell) I highly recommend it.

It's a TV show I don't think I can praise too highly. An absolute masterpiece. I'm fascinated/terrified to see what the movie will be like.

Altogether now: "It was the time of the preacher, In the year of oh-one, Now that time is over, And the killin's begun."

Pure genius.

Dammit I love Paul Schraeder. I always meant to pick this movie up at the video store. Why didn't I? Netflix it is.

I thought it was a strong reproach of Schrader's Calivinist upbringing.
