Bad Cinema: Quiet Cool (free)

  • Madison Public Library 201 West Mifflin Street Madison, WI, 53703 United States (map)

Clay Borris' 1986 thriller/travesty Quiet Cool begins when a New York City cop's former love interest reaches out to him for help finding her missing family. The loose-cannon officer, Joe Dylanne (James Remar). is asked to come to the Northwest (yep, just “the Northwest”), where he eventually discovered that Katy Greer’s (played by Daphne Ashbrook, sister of Twin Peaks’ Dana Ashbrook) family was massacred. This leads him to investigate an evil crew of weed growers. Worth the watch alone for its sinister portrayal of grow-ops, a completely over-the-top kill count, and a smorgasbord of shit acting, Quiet Cool should fit snugly into the Madison Public Library's Bad Cinema series. —Joel Shanahan
