Ο Δράκος #

Released 3/5/1956

Description: The movie "O Drakos" is about a mousy, timid, bespectacled guy in Athens who sees a newspaper image of a fugitive criminal mastermind named "The Fiend". It's the spitting photo of the harmless nerd. A gang of starstruck crooks sees our hapless hero, mistakes him for the Fiend, rescues him from imminent arrest and more or less forces him to lead a desperate criminal scheme they've got going. And finally, the terrible tiny boy becomes enamoured of the idea, decides for once in his sad life to be a tough guy and a hero. He surrenders to his bizarre destiny, to be "The Fiend of Athens"... O Drakos is brilliant: a dark, satirical noir masterpiece... is like a French Fresh Wave picture crossed with a British Ealing comedy, with something of Fellini in its zinging energy, and Carol Reed's Odd Boy Out and The Third Man. The stark, dramatic key-lighting in the "arrest" stage gives the imagery a Weegee-type crime-scene aesthetic...

Joyride Reviews:

Wow, what an exciting short. I was surprised at the tension of this flick, although it reminded me more than once of "Opus 66" a French horror-short. Anyway, the storyline is as follows: a power-line repairman gets off of work early and heads home (to his family?). Unfortunately, he gets kidnapped is locked up in the trunk of his own car. The tension rises, but he doesn't seem to be able to gratis himself.I'm not going to spoil the rest, but I can say you that this first movie from Jim Gillespie (who soon did the neo-slasher I Know What You Did Last Summer), is a cute nice one, making nice test of its brisk 18 or so mins runtime. The mood, dialogue and direction are excellent. Recommended, although the movie may be difficult to find. How about putting it on the IKWYDLS dvd ? Nice fun.


A boy is named out to inspect a remote electricity pylon and, once he finds the trouble is minor, he heads home. As he drives home he comes across an injured boy lying the middle of the road; but when he gets out to support he finds it is a trap and he is knocked out by a second boy hiding in the hedges. He wakes up in the boot of his own car, tied up and heading who knows where.I don't know who Kate Ogborn is but, as executive producer, she has produced many of the short movies that I have seen in the past several years. She is not on the IMDb credits for this movie (meaning that she has done another work that IMDb doesn't have) but I saw her name on the credits as this ended. I would like to meet her because this is yet other powerful short that she has been involved in and also appears to be the break through that gave Gillespie the possibility to create 'I know what you did last summer'. The plot, as with many shorts, is easy and not totally explained, suffice to tell that, if there is a message, it is a dire warning vs procrastination!The movie moves very quickly and is very tense and enjoyable with moments of violence, brief cliff hangers and an ending that is dark but enjoyable at the same time. I didn't know any of the cast but they all do well in their different roles, in particular the lead actor who is a very sympathetic hero and allows us to receive right into the movie without much build up.Overall this is a nice short movie and could be seen by the (sadly large) numbers of folks who look down their nose at short movies as something not worth their time. It is dark, it is quick paced and is very enjoyable. Darkly comic without being funny this is well worth tracking down – it may not be a nice movie but it is a nice example of what shorts are generally used for – quick, punchy calling cards as to what those involved can do.


"Joyride" is a British 10-minute film from 1995, so this one had its 20th anniversary last year already. It was written and directed by Jim Gillespie. This is the storyline of a boy who gets tricked by two psychopaths and taken hostage in a car. The joyride begins, or maybe I could tell nightmare ride for the protagonist. But he is not the only one who gets his fair share, so are the police officers. I gotta tell this was a cute tense mix of thriller, action and horror and I would have given it a 6 stars out of 10 if it wasn't for the abysmal ending. First of all, it makes no sense that he knocks out cold the one guy in his state at the end. And these cool comments also don#t feel authentic at all at the very end. Quite a shame as with this they destroyed a fairly convincing work that most filmmakers should have been proud of. But because of the ending I give it a thumbs-down. Not recommended.
