Midori's animated deformation nightmare

Midori’s animated deformation nightmare

Midori is a shocking and hypnotic slice of animation. As unsettling as it may be and as raw as its animation is, it is a strangely beautiful film filled with many gloriously disturbing sequences like the clip below demonstrates.
The Return of Captain Invincible (1983)

The Return of Captain Invincible (1983)

With the latest film on the Marvel conveyor belt/money printing machine, Avengers: Age of Ultron, around the corner, it's a good time to review one of Australia's greatest superhero movies, well, one of Australia's two superhero movies – The Return of Captain Invincible.
Spring Break (1983)

Spring Break (1983)

Spring Break is relentless tits, beer swilling, tanning lotion, and urinating. Everything is filtered through that special sort of hedonistic lens that ceased to exist once the 90s rolled by. It's the perfect 80s teen sex comedy, and I love the shit out of it.

Beast of Blood/Curse of the Vampires – US combo poster

Just look at it. A thing of comedically macabre beauty.
See ya, champ!

See ya, champ!

In Mikey, TV's Brian Bonsall (who, for the record, now looks like this) is a psychotic orphan who burns through several foster families, sometimes quite literally. There's no subtlety to Bonsall's horrendous acts as he spouts one-liners and kills the crap out of everyone.

Man... who would have thought a Fred Olen Ray movie could inspire such great artwork?
Snake Girl transforms and attacks!

Snake Girl transforms and attacks!

Filled to the brim with mad effects and hallucinatory sequences, The Snake Girl and the Silver-Haired Witch perfectly captures the lunacy of an Umezu story. To wet your appetite, here's a scene that had me grinning ear-to-ear.
Toho's King Kong (キングコング Kingu Kongu)

Toho’s King Kong (キングコング Kingu Kongu)

King Kong works better as a stop-motion creation rather than a man in a suit, or at least the suit Toho used. But there's an undeniable charm to Toho's Kingu Kongu. It's hard not to take some pleasure from that frozen expression of joy on his mangy face.

Berberian Sound Studio – UK poster

Not an obscure movie by any means, but nonetheless, I cannot forbid such a gorgeous movie poster from being ignored simply because the movie in question achieved some popularity. I don't even want to say anything about it. Just look at it.

Cynthia Rothrock destroys Richard Norton with a thousand kicks

Well, maybe not a thousand, but there's certainly an inordinate amount of kicking in this clip from Lady Dragon.
Sweet Movie - German poster

Sweet Movie – German poster

Dusan Makavejev's Sweet Movie is the epitome of a divisive film. It also happens to be a personal favourite of mine, mixing the evocative with the funny, intense and plain gross.
