WINDOWS (1980)

Friday, December 30th, 2011

Much lauded cinematographer Gordon Willis’s directorial début seems to be a rather divisive piece; most seem to find it sans merit, whereas I found it to be flawed but incredibly entertaining. (This is no doubt due to my equally obsessive appreciation of Talia Shire)

ONE OF MY WIVES IS MISSING (1976)

Friday, December 30th, 2011

Cult TV thriller with acting heavyweights Klugman and Ashley.

TWIN DRAGON ENCOUNTER (1986)

Thursday, December 29th, 2011

One of the wilder examples of gonzoid Canuxploitation starring the sinuous McNamara Kung Fu twins no less! (This rumbustious title was eventually blessed with its very own sequel of sorts!)

AMERICAN NIGHTMARE (1983)

Thursday, December 29th, 2011

A somewhat obscure edition to the giallo cannon from Canada. I always have time for another robust example of lurid, razor-wielding horror, especially one starring genre icon Michael Ironside!

S.O.S CONCORDE (1979) (aka) THE CONCORDE AFFAIR

Thursday, December 29th, 2011

Zesty actioner from the generally reliable Ruggero Deodato. (nice cast!)

LA POLIZIA ORDINA SPARATE A VISTA (1976)

Sunday, December 25th, 2011

Rare eurocrime with the ubiquitous Gordon Mitchell.

NELLA STRETTA MORSA DEL RAGNO (1971)

Sunday, December 25th, 2011

Primo Margheriti with the inimitable Kinski playing Poe! Good stuff!

LA LUNGA SPIAGGIA FREDDA (1971)

Sunday, December 25th, 2011

Giallo directed by legendary genre scrivener Gestaldi with a cool score by Cipriani!
