Audience Reviews for The Villain Still Pursued Her


This absurd parody of Victorian melodramas watched in the right frame of mind is very enjoyable. The cast attacks the material with the right degree of whimsy playing it broadly, the only reasonable approach to something designed to be this silly. If you start watching expecting anything but an overblown bit of ridiculousness you'll either be disappointed or irritated.
