Critic Reviews for Who Killed Teddy Bear
It's an irresistibly cool psychedelic thriller which mixes the party vibes of '60s New York with the dark and twisted mind of a madman.
It may have been taboo back then, when it was even refused an age certification for its cinema release, but its shock value has long since faded. However it's still worthy of being called a cult classic.
Audience Reviews for Who Killed Teddy Bear
Interestingly shot and both Juliet Prowse and Elaine Stritch look great but its story is ugly.
Dated aesthetics, poor acting and arythmic direction. The bonus is that it deals with themes that were taboo for the time. Sal Mineo is very clearly a precursor of De Niro in Taxi Driver , his wanderings in the NYC red light district, infatuation with a stranger, and even his workout routine, all make me wonder if Scorsese, Paul Schrader or even Bernard Herrmann ever saw this mediocre but gutsy b-movie.
