Shinjuku Triad Society (1995)

Takashi Miike is a devisive director. He’s spent his very prolific career cranking out hyper violent cheap yakuza films, bizarre and often highly disgusting personal films, dramas, a musical, family fantasy films, and high class respectable art cinema. He’s had a varied career to say the list. Best known for Audition, Ichi the Killer, 13 […]

The Good, The Tough, The Deadly (2016)

Growing up in the video store era I spent a lot of time in the action section. At my local mom & pop it was the largest section they had and I loved grabbing arm loads of direct to video fun. I spent many summers grabbing everything that looked good. Fast forward to today and […]

What Have You Done To Solange? (1972)

About a decade ago (has it been that long?!) I went on a giallo binge. I looked up lists online and tried to knock out the best of the best. I remembered watching this flick and not having my socks blown when I saw it. When I got the Blu it was great timing, I […]

The Mutilator (1984)

Arrow has been spewing out fantastic movies at a breakneck speed ever since they crossed the pond to dispense goodness with us colonists. It’s astounding how many titles they’ve churned out in such a short time, all stacked with extras and restored from the ground up. The Mutilator is one such title that they’ve give […]

Pray For Death (1985)

Sho Kosugi returns in Pray for Death after his breakout roles in the fantastically fun Revenge of the Ninja (1983) and Ninja III: The Domination (1984) . This time around the film was not produced by Canon films but by Trans World Entertainment whom were also purveyors of over the top action cheese. Unlike his […]

Italian Crime Filmography 1968-1980 (2013)

Back in my early 20’s I really got into European horror films, especially those from Italy. Their films were more unhinged, had better soundtracks, pretty girls, and crazy violence in them. I purchased a copy of (now defunct) Film Fanaddict Magazine. In the back of one issue it stated there would be an article about […]

Eaten Alive (1977)

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre is a film that looms large over the horror genre and in the hearts/minds of horror fans. It’s a film that spawned a plethora of sequels and imitators. It’s a nasty, mean, cruel, sweaty, and visceral film. So if you’re Tobe Hooper and you have an unexpected runaway hit, what do […]

Day of Anger (1967)

For a while now Arrow Video has dominated dvd/blu ray releases in the U.K. Savvy film buffs have been importing them to the U.S. and playing them on region free players but now Arrow Films has decided to break into the U.S. market and one of their very first releases is the spaghetti western, Day […]

Eurocrime (2014)

Eurocrime is a subgenre of Italian film that usually only serious film fanatics ever dig into. Usually it’s horror fiends that start to dig into some of the other films horror guys did (notably Umberto Lenzi and Lucio Fulci) and suddenly they’ve stumbled onto something almost no one has heard of outside of Italy the […]

Killing American Style (1990)

In recent years there has been growing momentum for cult action flicks from the 80’s that are so awful it’s unbelievable. Deadly Prey, Miami Connection, and Samurai Cop are some of the genre favs right now and I can honestly say I love all three. They make great party movies to sit around and laugh […]
