The Evil Dead – Japanese poster

I have quite a few posters sitting under my bed. Most will hopefully be up on my wall when I can afford to frame them. Some will stay there. Like this Japanese poster for The Evil Dead.
"Sorry about your house, buddy!"

“Sorry about your house, buddy!”

This is my favourite scene of shit blowing up in Action U.S.A.. The house of some superfluous hicks gets in the way of a car chase, and, for some reason, IT BLOWS UP!
Loose Screws aka Screwballs II (1985)

Loose Screws aka Screwballs II (1985)

It was like aliens with no understanding of human beings had recreated a school counsellor's transcripts of male teenage fantasies through film and using the 80s as an aesthetic reference. Loose Screws is a fucking nightmare. It is amazing.
3AM - US poster

3AM – US poster

Another great vintage porn poster from the Westwood Films stable. I know I post a lot of these, but I just love them so much.
Bad English in Dragon Fight

Bad English in Dragon Fight

Billy Tang's Dragon Fight — a decent Jet Li actioner — features an entire room of confused foreign actors. The dubbed English dialogue constantly mumbles and bumbles over the scene. Someone even yells "SHUT UP!" in the middle of the scene.
Cabaret Sin (1987) & Empire of the Sins (1988)

Cabaret Sin (1987) & Empire of the Sins (1988)

Despite the graphic fucking, I sometimes had to remind myself I was watching a hardcore porn film. Other times I had to remind myself I was watching a film. Cabaret Sin and its sequel's refusal to adhere to comprehensible storytelling creates an intoxicating, almost ethereal effect.
Pituitary Hunter - Thai poster

Pituitary Hunter – Thai poster

It has been far too long since we've featured a wacky Thai poster. Please accept this insane Thai poster for Category III curio Pituitary Hunter as an apology.
Clumsiest henchman ever in Samurai Cop

Clumsiest henchman ever in Samurai Cop

Chris reviewed Samurai Cop on Mondo Exploito some time ago, but I — along with a handful of fellow trash lovin' pals — watched it for the first time last night. To put it mildly, it blew my mind.
Half Past Midnight (1988)

Half Past Midnight (1988)

Half Past Midnight is like a raw and simplified Carrie. There's no telekinesis or tampon throwing. There's no hyper-Christian mother. There's just Debbie, a chainsaw, and an overbearing music score.

I Spit on Your Grave - Italian poster

I Spit on Your Grave – Italian poster

I Spit on Your Grave is already a remarkably unpleasant film, but this poster puts it through the Italian filter of sexy lingerie, blood, bondage, and a leather bound stool resulting in something far more obnoxious dripping in gaudy glitz.
Prison yard love

Prison yard love

This discussion between two inmates where they lament the troubles of prison yard love is both hysterical in its outrageous and very Australian dialogue and also strangely touching in an odd, sweary way.
