THE SADIST HAS RED TEETH (1971)

Thursday, December 9th, 2010

Weird beard gallic surrealist sex-vampire allegory; not exactly Jean Rollin!

THE WITCH’S MIRROR (1962)

Thursday, December 9th, 2010

Quality Mexican Horror.

THE TERRONAUTS (1967)

Thursday, December 9th, 2010
Utterly bonkers Brit Sci-Fi with a highly implausible Charles Hawtrey; it’s all quite splendid really!

PERSECUTION (1974)

Thursday, December 9th, 2010
Atmospheric Gothic melodrama with the permanently wan Ralph Bates embroiled in a familial internecine struggle with Lana Turner (A role far better suited to Bettie Davis).

NO PLACE TO HIDE (1981)

Thursday, December 9th, 2010

Entertaining TV thriller from the prolific pen of Hammer alumnus Jimmy Sangster; probably best not to dwell too closely on the plot and simply enjoy the giddy ride.

OK CONNERY (1967)

Neil Connery is indeed too much! Sadly, sometimes the apple does indeed fall some considerable distance from the tree.

SUPERARGO AGAINST DIABOLICUS (1968)

Sunday, December 5th, 2010

Italian masked avenger madness from 1968.

BLUE MOVIE (1978)

A righteous, greasy-palmed heft of Italo-sleaze from Cavallone.

RAGAZZA TUTTA NUDA ASSASSINATA NEL PARCO (1972)

Decent early 70’s Giallo with the always-watchable Adolfo Celi and a neat-o score by Genre veteran Carlo Savina.

NEL NOME DEL PADRE (1972)

Sunday, December 5th, 2010

An Italian rarity!
