The Devil’s Honey (1986)

The name Lucio Fulci for many film fans is synonymous with the word gore. His name looms large over those of us who enjoy a bit of the red stuff but in recent years his non-horror films have received reappraisal. Now instead of automatically thinking about films like the New York Ripper and Zombie, he’s […]

Dr. Jekyll and Miss Osbourne (1981)

Arrow Video have made a name for themselves for releasing fantastic films with great restoration and special features. They aren’t bound by genre and have released a little bit of everything as long as it’s a bit under the radar. I love the company and look forward to each release. Dr. Jekyll and Miss Osbourne […]

Giallo Meltdown (2015)

It’s been awhile since I’ve watched any giallo films in earnest. For a while, I couldn’t get enough but after seeing a few misfires in a row I suppose I moved on to other interests. Author Richard Glenn Schmidt did not. His obsession with gialli is like an ever burning flame and that flame can […]

Werewolf Woman (1976)

Italy made a name for itself in the 70’s for producing some of the most over top, graphic, bizarre films the world had ever seen. Eurocrime flicks, sexploitation, and yes horror films were filled with odd setups, hyper violence, nudity, and depravity. Add Werewolf Woman onto the long list of extreme Italian cinema. Werewolf Woman […]

Back in the 80’s and early 90’s there was a huge demand for new content that video stores could purchase and put on their shelves, filling their store with all sorts of wonderful films for customers to enjoy. The trouble was, tapes in those days were incredibly expensive. Little mom & pop shops didn’t have […]

The Gestapo’s Last Orgy (1977)

There was a time about 10 years ago that I was obsessed with the Video Nasties. I wanted to know why they were banned and if they were really all that awful. So, I found a list online and I went through as many as I could get my hands on. I believe I watched […]

Video Nasties: The Definitive Guide (2014)

About 10 years ago I discovered the video nasty phenomenon. Here in the states we can usually release whatever the hell we want but the blokes out in the U.K. have not had it so good. In the early 80’s as VCRs became available, distributors started pumping out all sorts of lurid covers from graphic […]

Ozsploitation Trailer Explosion (2014)

As I mentioned in my previous post I love Australian films. They’re funky, unique, and have a voice all their own. It can be hard to track them down though. Often they use American actors or Australian actors who act with American/British accents so the trademark twang might not be there to clue you in. […]

Weng’s Chop #4 (2013)

A relative newcomer to the world of zines (though the creators are old hands at the zine world), Weng’s Chop has grown from a decent sized cult fanzine to a mammoth journal worthy of anyone’s collection. Issue #4 isn’t an issue. It’s a book. Really. At 215 pages of magazine sized stock this thing is […]

Countess Perverse (1973)

Can I be honest and admit something to you? Ok. Here I go. I’m not a fan of Jess Franco. There. I said it. I’ve seen a handful of his films, probably not the high water marks, but all the films I’ve seen have been for me dull. Not enough action, and too much nudity […]
