VENGEANCE (aka) SCREAM FOR MURDER (1980)

Thursday, April 26th, 2012

Gritty slasher with all the grimy & bloody  accoutrements that should satisfy fans of the more “roughie” orientated spectrum of late 70’s stalk n’ slash. A pretty tough effort by Bob Blizz.

GINA (1975)

Thursday, April 26th, 2012

Gina is a truly magnificent example of rape-revenge canuxploitation, efficiently directed by Denys Arcand;starring the delicious Celine Lomez, who delivers an equally thrilling performance of the sultry go-go dancer that hath been wronged by egregious men. Her multiple vengeance killings, unlike her divine breasts, are anything but sweet!

DARK ECHO (1977)

Monday, April 23rd, 2012

Dark Echo is a profoundly obscure, yet highly atmospheric euro-horror with a most evocative score by  Slobodan Markovic and Sanja Ilic. Fans of The Blind Dead Series, Paul Naschy, Jean Rollin or the more overt horror-orientated cinema of Jess Franco should find much to enjoy here!

LE REGINE (aka) QUEENS OF EVIL (1970) #UPGRADE!#

Monday, April 23rd, 2012

After many years of patience I have finally got my giddy mitts on a pristine, English language print of this marvellously erotic vampire yarn.  (This has always been one of my personal favourite euro-cult title and is wholly deserving of much greater appreciation!)

L’UOMO LA DONNE E LA BESTIA (1977)

Friday, April 13th, 2012

Legendary sleaze-meister Alberto Cavallone delivers yet another lurid, surrealistic tale, replete with enough nudity and overt sensationalism to appease even the most jaded fan of sweaty Italian grindhouse! (Includes a truly funk-alicious score by Claudio Tallino)

LA BAMBOLA DI SATANA (1969)

Friday, April 13th, 2012

Obscure occult thriller from 1969. (Italian Language with English Subs)

HER MAJESTY’S TOP GUN (aka) No. 1 of The Secret Service (1977)

Friday, April 13th, 2012

The late-great Lindsay Shonteff’s marvellous pastiche of the espionage genre is a veritable hoot, helped in no small part by a truly zesty performance by Nicky Henson. Richard Todd makes for a most enjoyable nemesis; all in all ‘Her Majesty’s Top Gun’ is a sterling effort from the exploitation legend Shonteff.

RUNAWAY! (aka) THE RUNAWAY TRAIN! (1973)

Friday, April 13th, 2012

The director of ‘SST Death Flight’ flexes his nascent disaster movie muscles on this his early, and decidedly sterling effort. (Always a pleasure to see Ben Johnson in anything!)

SST DISASTER IN THE SKY (aka) SST-DEATH FLIGHT (1977)

Friday, April 13th, 2012

Entertaining disaster schlock with a truly epic cast of disaster movie veterans!
